TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The No. 15/RV Florida State Swimming and Diving programs will travel to Atlanta, Georgia, to take on No. 19/NR Georgia Tech in an ACC matchup.
“We’re excited to take on a good ACC team,” FSU head coach Neal Studd said. “This is a great facility and we’re looking forward to our athletes to travel well and be fast indoors.”
The meet will start at 11:00 a.m. at McCauley Aquatic Center and follow the 16-event format while men’s and women’s 1-meter and 3-meter diving happens simultaneously.
The Seminoles and Yellow Jackets will compete in 100s and 200s of each stroke in addition to the 50 free, 500 free, 1000 free, 200 IM, 200 medley relay and 400 free relay.
Live timing will be available via the meet mobile app.
The 15th-ranked FSU men’s program leads the series with the No. 19 Yellow Jackets 38-3 after winning the previous two meetings.
FSU edged GT in the fall of 2020 at home, 152-147 and on the road in 2019, 160-140.
The women also won the meet in 2019 against the Yellow Jackets 177-123 which contributed to their 15-2 overall record against Georgia Tech.
Later this fall, the Noles will travel to Atlanta to participate in the three-day Georgia Tech Invitational and will return in February for the ACC Championships and March for the NCAA Championships.
The Last Time Out
FSU split the meet against NR/23 Auburn last Friday with a win 153-147 for the men and a hard-fought loss 123-177 for the women.
Four new Morcom Aquatics Pool Records were set on Friday including individual records by Mason Herbet in the 100 back and 200 IM and Nina Kucheran in the 200 breast along with a team record in the 200 medley relay by Herbet, Izaak Bastian, Max McCusker, and Peter Varjasi.
The divers earned crucial points, placing first in all four diving events. Samantha Vear and Victoria Cervantes won the 1-meter and 3-meter, respectively, for the women, and Joshua Davidson won both the 1-meter and 3-meter for the men.
Davidson earned his seventh all-time ACC Diver of the Week award for his performance against Auburn.
