Four Swimmers Selected for NCAA Championships

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Four Florida State swimmers will join senior Dylan Grisell and junior Tyler Roberge at the 2017 NCAA Championships that will be held in Indianapolis, Ind. from March 22-25.

“We’re excited to have the four swimmers and four relays invited,” FSU head coach Neal Studd said. “Add in our success at diving zones with two qualifiers already – I could not be happier for this kind of presence at NCAAs in my first year as a head coach.”

Senior Jason Coombs becomes the first four-year qualifier since Rob Holderness made four-straight from 2008-2011. Coombs was selected to swim the 200 IM (1:44.03) with the option of competing in the 100 breast, where he placed ninth in the race at the 2015 meet in addition to the 200 breast.

Coombs is the current FSU record holder in both the 100 (52.11) and 200 (1:54.30) breast as both marks were originally held by Holderness (2011).

Joining Coombs are first-year individual qualifiers senior Jason McCormick along with juniors Connor Kalisz and Chad Mylin.

Mylin (19.39) and McCormick (19.41) both earned their bids by ways of the 50 free and are seeded 24th and 27th respectively. McCormick can also swim the 100 breast and 100 free, while Mylin can exercise the option to compete in the 100 back or 100 free.

Kalisz qualified for the meet in the 200 back (1:41.73) and has the option to race in the 200 IM and 100 back.

The Seminoles are also entered in the 200 and 400 free relay along with the 200 and 400 medley relay.
