Swimming & Diving to Face ACC Foe in Finale

TALLAHASSEE, Fla.  – The Florida State swimming and diving teams will look to bounce back this weekend as it travels to face Georgia Tech on Saturday at 11 a.m. at the Herb McAuley Aquatic Center in the final duel of the season.

“We’re looking forward to a good trip,” FSU head coach Neal Studd said. “This weekend being our last duel meet of the season against an ACC opponent at the ACC Championships Site, we’re eager to compete.”

Both squads fell to Alabama on the road last weekend, as the No. 25 women now hold a record 4-2, (1-0 ACC) while the 19th-ranked men dropped to 2-2, (1-0 ACC).

Georgia Tech hosted the Crimson Tide on Jan. 20 and suffered losses on both sides. The women head into Saturday’s showdown with a record of 4-4 (1-2 ACC) while the men are 4-2 (2-1 ACC).

The women are 12-1 all-time against Georgia Tech, while the men hold a 36-2 lead.

Competition will contain 16 events, including the 400 medley relay, 400 free relay, 1000 free and 200 IM.

In addition to preparing for the Yellow Jackets, FSU student-athletes, including 19 from the men’s swimming and diving team participated in literacy week by volunteering at local schools to read to young kids.

“I’m very proud our team is taking giving back to the community seriously,” Studd said. “I could not be happier with what they are doing. It’s good for them and the kids.”

The meet can be found on the ACC Network Extra and live timing will be available. For more information, visit Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
