Seminoles Swimming & Diving Hand Out Post-Season Awards

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. –
Head coach Neil Harper handed out his annual post season awards to his men’s and women’s swimming and diving team in recognition of the many individual accomplishments achieved this past season both in and out of the pool. In 2003, the Seminoles finished second at the men’s ACC meet and third at the women’s ACC meet, while both teams earned double-digit wins in consecutive seasons for the first time in school history. In addition, Harper saw 14 of his swimmers and divers earn ACC titles and 18 athletes earn All-ACC first team honors to go along with an impressive six NCAA honorable mention All-Americans. Success was not limited to the pool, as the men and women combined to earn a 3.15 GPA in 2002-03.
