A new division and a new conference has done little to slow down the success that Phil Davis has had with the UIW swimming and diving program. As a first year member of NCAA Division I, the Cardinals were ineligible from national competition. However, the men jumped in to the Coastal Collegiate Swimming Association and promptly won the title in 2013-14. The following year they finished as the CCSA Runner-Ups. Davis is in his 10th year as the women’s coach and ninth year in charge of the men’s program. Starting in 2007-08 through the conclusion of the 2012-13 season, Davis’ teams put together arguably the greatest stretch in UIW Athletics history. The men’s team finished the year ranked in the top 20 in each season and in the top 10 four seasons in a row. The women posted five consecutive top 20 seasons to close out the run. The two programs combined for seven Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference titles during the stretch that would likely have been more had he sent his top squads to the 2013 championships.
