Head coach Matt Barany has ensured the women's swimming and diving team won't be competing against any Atlantic 10 Conference teams until the championship so the team can compete against teams ranked higher. So, do the Spiders get discouraged swimming against superior teams all season? Barany said the Spiders weren't the disheartened ones. "It's discouraging for the rest of the A-10 because they only see us once a year." And for the past seven years, that one sighting has proved ineffective in conquering the Spiders, who have taken home the A-10 trophy every year since 2002. "We really don't talk about [our record] that much," said Barany, who has been coaching the swim team for four years.
