Jackets Compete at National and State Events

THE FLATS – Georgia Tech swimming & diving had a number of individuals hit the water last weekend, July 25-29, in both national and state events. Two Yellow Jackets competed at the 2018 Phillips 66 National Championships in Irvine, Calif., while another group of Tech swimmers participated in the 2018 Georgia Senior State Championship meet in Athens, Ga.

At the 2018 Phillips 66 National Championships meet, rising senior Colt Williamson turned in a time of 2:06.16 in the 200 LC meter backstroke to finish 67th overall, while fellow Tech swimmer Emily Ilgenfritz placed 57th overall in the women’s 400 LC meter freestyle with her time of 4:20.19. Both times were good enough to make the cut for the 2018 USA Swimming Futures Championships on August 2-5 in Cary, N.C.

At the 2018 Georgia Senior State Championships, a number of Yellow Jackets posted top-10 finishes in a number of different events, highlighted by wins from Brennan Day in both the men’s 200 LC meter IM (2:06.66) and the men’s 400 LC meter IM (4:28.02), Sara Gilbert in the women’s 50 LC meter backstroke (30.25), Joonas Koski in the men’s 200 LC meter backstroke (2:02.92) and Iris Wang in the women’s 100 LC meter freestyle (56.46).
