Men’s Swim & Dive Poised for NCAAs

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.  –  Following a successful week at the 2017 NCAA Championships for the Florida State women’s swimming and diving team, the 21st-ranked men are poised to take over from March 22-25 at the IUPUI Natatorium in Indianapolis, Ind.

Individually, the Seminoles will be represented by four swimmers and three divers in addition to competing in four relays.

“We have 11 total going to the meet and FSU is going to have a big impact,” FSU head coach Neal Studd said. “Just like with the women last week, we’re looking to getting up there and scoring. Getting those first points on the board and qualifying relays for finals is always key. I’m not sure where we could end up but if we do that we could be in the top 20.”

Florida State will start competing on Thursday, following the 800 free relay on Wednesday. Senior Jason Coombs will start his fourth NCAA meet by swimming the 200 IM while Jason McCormick and Chad Mylin will race in the 50 free. Junior Connor Kalisz can also exercise the option to swim the 200 IM.

The Seminoles will also race the 200 free relay where they are the ninth seed and the 400 medley relay.

In diving, senior Dylan Grisell and junior Tyler Roberge will compete in all three events, starting with 1-meter on Thursday.

Prelims will start at 10 a.m. and finals will follow at 6 p.m. with the top 16 advancing, including relays.

Friday and Saturday will be streamed live on NCAA.com and indianasportscorp.org/ncaasd. Live results for the championships will be available on NCAA.com.
