The five-time reigning Ivy League champion Princeton men's swimming and diving team will open the 2014 portion of its schedule Saturday against a team with similar championship credentials. The undefeated Tigers will head south to Annapolis, Md., to take on the reigning Patriot League champion Navy Midshipmen.

The meet will begin at 2 pm in Lejeune Hall, and will end a significant break from competition for both teams. Princeton (4-0, 4-0 Ivy) hasn't competed since winning the Big Al Open during the first weekend of December, while Navy (4-2) has been off since a 196-104 home victory over Army Dec. 12.

This meet has had several dramatic finishes over the last three years, including a five-point Princeton win during the last meeting at Lejeune Hall. Last season, five members of the Class of 2016 combined to win seven events during a 182-115 home win for the Tigers in DeNunzio Pool. Tiger underclassmen posted 1-2 finishes in seven of the 14 events, and they finished either first or second in 12 of 14.

Princeton is already off to a strong start this season. During its victory at the Big Al Open, sophomore Teo D'Alessandro broke the school records in both the 200 and 400 IM, while reigning Ivy League 100 back champion Michael Strand broke the Princeton record in that event.

Both teams are highly regarded this season among the top collegiate mid-major programs. In the latest rankings, which factored in the most recent events for all programs, Princeton was ranked first in the Endless Pools/CollegeSwimming.com Mid-Major Power Rankings, while Navy was ranked fifth.
