TALLAHASSEE, Fla. –
The Florida State University men’s and women’s swimming teams host Indian River Community College in a dual meet for both teams on Saturday at 10 a.m. at the Stolts Aquatic Center on the FSU campus.
The Seminole men, currently ranked 25th in the nation, will compete for the first time since facing No. 4 Arizona and No. 15 Southern Methodist last week. The Seminoles earned one first finish and five second place finishes during the two-day meet in Tucson, Ariz.
The Seminoles are led by co-captain Greg Main-Baillie who is one of the ACC’s top swimmers in short freestyle events as well as the backstroke and individual medley events. He was named the ACC swimmer of the week on Oct. 31 as he helped lead the Seminoles to a dual meet victory over Georgia Tech. Sophomore Devin Crock, who placed third in the 100 Fly and fourth in the 100 Backstroke at last year’s ACC Championships, is also enjoying a strong season.
The Seminole women won three events in Tucson as the battled No. 1 ranked Arizona through the final relay event, and lost a close meet, 197-156, to the top ranked Wildcats. In addition to three first place finishes, the Seminoles earned three third place finishes.
Veterans senior Kristen Adams and junior Christy Cech have provided leadership for the Seminoles this season. Florida State returned 14 letterwinners from last year’s squad that went 9-4 and sent five swimmers to the 2000 NCAA Championships. Adams, a team captain who hails from Greer, S.C., hopes to accomplish even greater things this season after competing in the 200, 400 and 800 Free Relays at the NCAA Championships last season. Cech, of Pieternaritzburg, Natal in South Africa, enjoyed a successful sophomore campaign as she won the ACC title in the 100 Free and competed in a maximum five events at the NCAA Championships.
