Kosic makes his third consecutive NCAA Championship appearance after having qualified for the 2015 meet in the 50 free, 100 free and 100 fly. Lumbra qualified with her sixth-place finish on the 1m springboard at this week’s Zone B Championship and becomes the first Tech female diver to qualify for the national championship meet since 2008. Homza placed fourth overall on the platform at the Zone B Championship on Wednesday, becoming Tech’s first male diver to qualify since Brandon Makinson in 2011.
At the ACC Championship last week in Atlanta, Kosic was the silver-medalist in the 100 free (42.45), the bronze-medalist in the 50 free (19.23) and finished fourth in the 100 fly (46.36). He had a hand in all six Tech school that fell during the ACC Championships – 50 free, 100 free, 200 free (1:34.55), 100 fly, 400 medley relay (3:10.06) and 400 free relay (2:52.47).
A senior from West Chester, Pa., Kosic finished 15th in the 50 free (19.42) at last year’s NCAA Championship, becoming Tech’s first point-scorer in the national championship meet since 2010.
The NCAA Women’s Swimming & Diving Championship will be contested March 19-21 in Greensboro, N.C., while the Men’s Championship is in Iowa City, Iowa from March 26-28. Georgia Tech will host both championships next season.
