Centerville, Mass. - The 2013 ECAC Swimming and Diving Championships will take place this weekend at Harvard University’s Blodgett Pool. More than 30 ECAC member teams will compete in the championship. This includes 2012 ECAC men's and women's swimming and diving champions Navy who will return in 2013 to defend their titles.
The championship will begin with trials on Friday, March 1st, with competition continuing through the evening of Sunday, March 3rd. The weekend's complete schedule of events is available below.
Blodgett Pool was a gift of the late John W. Blodgett Jr., '23. Regarded among the finest collegiate swimming facilities in the nation for fans and spectators alike, it was dedicated on February 4, 1978, when the Harvard men's team hosted Princeton University.
The pool has permanent spectator seating for 1,200, and there is room on the pool deck to accommodate 500 swimmers, coaches, and officials. Blodgett Pool has hosted several men's and women's Ivy and Eastern Championships, and was the site of the 57th annual NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships in 1980. In 1991, Blodgett hosted the NCAA Men's Region One Diving Qualifier. Blodgett hosted both the Ivy League men's and women's championships on several occasions.
In addition, the pool is the home of the water polo teams, and served as the host venue for the CWPA Men's Water Polo Northern Championships in 2002 and the Women's Eastern Championships in 2009.
