In the Division III Centennial Conference, swim programs are allowed to begin practice on September 23rd. For the second year running, The Ursinus College Bears didn’t waste a second in getting started. At Midnight on September 23rd, they stepped up onto the blocks and started their season with a dive. Following a historic 2012-13 season where both the Men and Women finished second in the Centennial Conference, the Bears know they have to continue to step up to be in the mix at the end of this season. With several key first-semester match ups looming on the horizon, hitting the ground running is as important as ever.
Head Coach Mark Feinberg begins his ninth season at the program’s helm. He has guided the Bears from the basement of the Centennial Conference to championship contenders. His dynamic morning dryland and focused, fast, quality practices have rewritten the record board pushed swimmers of all levels to personal bests.
Ursinus College is a highly selective, independent, coeducational, four-year liberal arts college located in Collegeville, Pennsylvania. Founded in 1869, Ursinus sits on a 170-acre wooded campus approximately 25 miles from Center City Philadelphia.
The Bears open up their season with a home dual meet against Dickinson on Oct. 26.
