After a tri-meet at Auburn that was admittedly challenging, the No. 25 Wisconsin men’s swim and dive team, and the No. 12 Wisconsin women’s swim and dive team (0-1 men, 0-1 women), are ready to begin its two-meet homestand with a dual meet against star-studded No. 8 and No. 4 Georgia (1-0, 1-0) on Thursday.
After graduating one of the largest senior classes in recent memory, the Wisconsin swimming and diving team is back in 2017-’18 with a new, more versatile look. With an incoming class that includes two national champions, an Olympian and three high-profile transfers, head coach Whitney Hite and his team should have little trouble climbing the ranks of the Big Ten.
Senior forward Cameron Hughes had a 2016-’17 season filled with challenges both on and off the ice. Simply, Hughes had his hands full last year. Off the ice, Hughes was tasked with studying for difficult classes in a competitive major. On the ice, he was asked to aid in the turnaround of a team that had 12 wins total over his first two seasons, all while adjusting to a new coaching staff and system that was very different from what he was recruited to play in.
On any given Sunday night, it’s likely you’ll see senior tight end Troy Fumagalli walking down the streets of Madison with a yoga mat, heading to a yin class. Although almost all of the Wisconsin faithful recognize Fumagalli on the field as Alex Hornibrook’s go-to receiver, most wouldn’t recognize him with his yoga mat as someone with a passion for practicing yoga.
Take one look at the BYU (1-2) roster, and you’ll notice something slightly different than most other schools. While the Cougars’ website lists all the usual statistics of a student-athlete such as height, weight, position, eligibility and hometown, there is a column on the far right side of their roster page listing “roster seasons” as well. With some players having been on BYU’s roster as early as 2011, one has to wonder about the program’s unique situation pertaining to the return of missionary athletes and its affects on their play.
For senior forward Cameron Hughes, the 2016-’17 season came with significant challenges both on and off the ice. Not only was the 20-year-old forward tasked with keeping his grades up in business classes and adjusting to a new coaching staff, but he was also a big part of helping to lead the turnaround of a team that won a total of 12 games over his first two seasons in Madison. But by no means was that all of what Hughes, last year’s alternate captain, had on his plate.
Monday night, four Wisconsin student-athletes added to their seemingly never-ending lists of accolades earning the highest honors one can receive as a Badger athlete at the Buckinghams.
When McKena Ramos was recruited to run track at the UW-Oshkosh four years ago, his coaches never expected that he would become a five-time All-American and two-time national champion in just one season.
The No. 12 Wisconsin Badgers come into this meet with top-ten aspirations and a stacked team, which is a welcome change from previous years. Head coach Whitney Hite recruited a top-four class this year, and it shows with the team’s overall success and improvement this season.
We are an extremely concerned group of students from a variety of backgrounds who are appalled at the op-ed by Kort Driessen entitled “Islam's flaws cannot go unnoticed in discussing the term 'Islamophobia',” published on March 13, 2017.

Cannon Clifton knew his senior season was going to be big after his breakout performance at last summer’s U.S. Open, but he didn’t know exactly how big it was going to be until the school records started falling like confetti at the Big Ten Championships this weekend.
The 500-yard freestyle and the mile are two of the most exciting races in collegiate swimming. The length is long enough where there are constant lead changes, and when multiple swimmers are going stroke-for-stroke near the end and one breaks away, the energy around the pool is electric.
All year, the stars of the No. 22 Wisconsin men’s swim and dive team have been seniors Cannon Clifton, Matt Hutchins and Brett Pinfold. Although the three will be heavily relied upon this weekend at the Big Ten Championships, head coach Whitney Hite believes that the meet will be his entire team’s time to shine.
With the highly touted recruiting class that head coach Whitney Hite brought in at the beginning of the year, the Wisconsin women’s swim and dive team was expected to finish in the Top 5 at the Big Ten Championships. What was not expected, however, was a third-place finish—the best finish for the Badger women since 2005.
All season, the No. 12 Wisconsin women’s swimming and diving team has been working toward the elusive goal of winning a Big Ten title. Head coach Whitney Hite believes that this year might be the year his team will finally overtake traditional powerhouses like No. 6 Michigan and No. 15 Indiana and bring home the big prize this week at the Big Ten Championship meet, in West Lafayette, Ind.
The record board at the UW Natatorium likely needs a full-on repair job after the complete demolition the Wisconsin swim and dive team did to it Friday night.
