FSU’s Marshburn Named ACC Swimmer Of The Week

Dec. 10, 2002

Florida State senior Joey Marshburn has been named ACC Men’s Swimming and Diving Performer of the Week following his performance at the 2002 Georgia Invitational last weekend. Marshburn, a native of Marietta, Ga., posted two top ACC individual times this past weekend in the 50-yard and 100-yard freestyles.

Marshburn finished first in the 50-free with an ACC-best and NCAA B-cut time of 20.31. His time of 44.96 in the 100-yard freestyle, also a top ACC time, placed him second at the Invite and narrowly missed B-cut standards.

In addition to his individual performances, Marshburn helped Florida State finish second in a field of five teams at the invitational through his efforts in the 200-yard freestyle relay (1:20.28) and the 400-free relay (2:58.70). With their times in the 200 and 400-yard freestyle relays, the Seminoles now lead the ACC in both events and have provisionally qualified for the 2003 NCAA Championships.
