The men's squad enters championships action with a perfect 10-0 record on the season which included wins over CAA opponents Towson, Delaware, George Mason, William & Mary, and last year's champion, UNC-Wilmington. Diver Noah Scully has been a four-time CAA Diver of the Week and has captured the top 1 meter score among all CAA divers.
