If you want to find three swimming & diving teams that feel good about themselves right now (and for good reason), Denunzio Pool will be the place to be. A trio of undefeated programs will meet up in Princeton Saturday evening and Super Sunday afternoon for the annual H-Y-P showdown.

Princeton is the four-time defending Ivy League champion and comes into the weekend with a 5-0 record. Harvard is 6-0 and is coming off a victory over the 20th-ranked Fighting Irish of Notre Dame, and Yale is 7-0, which already eclipses its win total from all of last season.

Both sessions of the meet (Saturday at 6 pm and Sunday at noon) will be streamed live on GoPrincetonTigers.TV, and there will be live results throughout the weekend. You can access both through the links at the top of the story.

You can also download the Meet Mobile App here. There is a $1.99 fee to follow each meet, though you will not be charged for both sessions within the same meet.

While the league championship can come down to the deepest squad, some of the top individual swimmers will make an early statement this weekend in what is arguably the biggest regular season meet in the Ivy League.

Several of the top sprinters in the Ivies come from either Princeton or Harvard, including Tiger sophomore Harrison Wagner, who has the Ivy's best time in the 50 free (20.04), and freshman Jeremy Wong, who has the league's best time in the 100 (44.16). Harvard sophomore Griffin Schumacher has top-five times in both the 50 and the 100, while junior teammate Chris Satterthwaite has top-five times in the 50, 100 and 200.

Among the top distance swimmers are Harvard's Mike Gaudiani, who has the fastest time in the 1000 (9:20.45), and Princeton's Paul Nolle, who won the 500, 1000 and mile at the 2012 Ivy League Championships.

Princeton freshman En-wei Hu-Van Wright has the Ivy League's best time in both the 100 back (48.20) and the 200 back (1:45.52), while both sophomore Michael Strand and senior Kaspar Raigla are top contenders in the 100. Harvard freshman Christian Yeager ranks third in the 200 back (1:48.34).

Harvard sophomore Chuck Katis has already achieved 'A' cuts in both the 100 and 200 breast, but a trio of Tiger freshmen will be looking to challenge in both events. Byron Sanborn has top-five Ivy times in both events, while both Teo D'Alessandro and Jack Pohlmann have broken 56 seconds in the 100.

Princeton will have several top contenders in the fly, including Raigla and freshman Marco Bove. Yale sophomore Alwin Firmansyah has a 'B' cut in the 200 fly. Katis and Hu-Van Wright both have top-three times in the 200 IM.

Senior diver Stevie Vines will be making his final appearance at Denunzio Pool this weekend; he has played a key role in the last three Ivy League championships, including his 2011 honor as the Ivy League Championships Diver of the Meet.
