*BOSTON** - *The Harvard men's swimming and diving team honored the 
success of the 2008-09 season by handing out the team awards at its 
annual end-of-season banquet Saturday at the Harvard Club of Boston.

Junior Alex Meyer

who will serve as a team co-captain for the 2009-10 campaign, took home 
two of the major awards at the banquet.  First, Meyer was bestowed with 
the Reid Jorgensen Trophy as the team's most improved junior.  Meyer, 
who placed 25th at the NCAA Championships in the 1,650 freestyle and won 
the 1,000 and 1,650 free at the Ivy League Championships, was also 
awarded the Eugene B. Wyman Trophy, given to the squad's top scorer in 
dual meets.  Meyer was a two-time All-Ivy League first-team selection.

Next, the William J. Brooks Trophy, given annually to the swimmer or 
diver who contributes the most to the success of the team, was given to 
sophomore diver Zac Ranta

a four-time All-Ivy League selection this season and an Academic All-Ivy 
choice, took home the Stowell Trophy, presented annually to the senior
