Noles Hit the Road for ACC Contest

TALLAHASSEE, Fla.  –  The Florida State women’s swimming and diving team (4-1, 1-0 ACC) will hit the road to face Miami (4-1, 1-0 ACC) in Coral Gables, Fla., at the Norman Whitten Pool on Friday. 

“We’re excited for a fun women’s trip to Miami,” FSU head coach Neal Studd said. “We’re a coed team, but it’s also important for each team to have its own identity and foster leadership. The ladies look great, and they’re ready to go.”

The meet will begin at 3 p.m. and will follow the 16-event format. The teams will compete in 100s and 200s of each stroke in addition to the 50 free, 500 free, 1000 free and 200 IM.

The contest will start with the 200 medley relay and conclude with the 400 free relay. Both 1-meter and 3-meter diving will run concurrently to swimming.

Live timing will be available via the meet mobile app.

The Series

Dating back to 1971, the Seminoles hold the series advantage of the Hurricanes, 30-15, and have won the previous 18 meetings.

FSU last hosted Miami in a tri-meet on Jan. 25, 2020, where the Noles won 230-64.

Both teams defeated Georgia Tech in duals this season. Miami took down the Yellow Jackets 196-176, while competing in just swimming events. FSU won its contest 159-141.

The Last Time Out

To close out the fall schedule, the Noles competed at the Georgia Tech Invitational in Atlanta, Ga. The women’s team claimed fourth with 788 points behind No. 12 Georgia, No. 16 Florida and No. 19 Auburn.

Nina Kucheran set her second school record through a personal best and NCAA provisional time of 1:57.56 in the 200 IM. She also lowered her original school record time in the 200 breast to 2:08.57.

Noles in the Polls

In the CSCAA January Coaches’ Poll, the men’s team were ranked in its 27th-straigh poll, coming in at No. 19, while the women received votes. 

The Seminoles will close out the regular season on Jan. 28 at 2 p.m. against Tampa at the Morcom Aquatics Center.
