@GTSwim Sends Seven to NCAA Championships

March 11, 2015

THE FLATS – Senior All-American Andrew Kosic, divers Shannon Lumbra and Brad Homza and four Georgia Tech men’s relays will compete in the 2015 NCAA Swimming & Diving Championships.

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.

Tech’s four qualifying men’s relays are the 200 free, 400 free, 800 free and 400 medley. The relays will include Kosic, Ricky Lehner, Youssef Hammoud, Nico van Duijn and Noah Harasz.

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.
