In the February 2012 issue of Splash Magazine - the official magazine of USA Swimming - the Howard University Bison swimmers were recognized as "influential contributors" for championing the cause of swimming in the black community.  To be recognized in a national magazine is quite an honor for the team and university.  The attachment is a page can be found here.BlackHistoryAdSplash%5B1%5D.pdf
