CLEMSON, S.C. –
The Florida State University men’s swimming and diving team were only able to win three events in Saturday morning’s 156-85 dual meet lost to Clemson (1-1, 1-1 ACC) at the McHugh Natatorium. The Seminoles, who defeated Georgia Tech Friday night, picked up their first loss of the season, dropping their record to 5-1 and 2-1 in the Atlantic Coast Conference.
Freshman diver Louie Gagnet swept the one and three-meter events for the fourth-straight dual meet to lead the Seminoles. On the one-meter, Gagnet scored 293.40 and later turned in a top mark of 338.18 on the three-meter board. Gagnet currently holds the school record on the three-meter with a score of 363.85.
The lone highlight for the swimmers came in the 50-yard freestyle, which the Seminoles placed first, second and third. Junior Nnamnse Ammons won his fourth 50 free in as many meets, touching the wall at 21.27. Sophomore Wickus Neinaber placed second for the Tribe (21.29) and junior Matt Carmen finished third (21.33).
The Seminoles return to action on November 16, when they travel to Gainesville, Fla. to take on in-state rival Florida at 4 p.m.
