Day Four Prelim Results

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – Senior Moises Loschi and freshman Christian Ferraro highlighted the Yellow Jackets’ final day of the 2018 NCAA Men’s Swimming and Diving Championships on Saturday in Minneapolis, Minn., as both posted a top-25 finish.

“I am proud of these four guys on getting to the NCAAs,” stated head coach Courtney Shealy Hart. “It’s a great accomplishment for them and I know that they enjoyed the whole experience. Our goal next year is to score and be a top 25 program.”

In his final race as a Yellow Jacket, Loschi posted a 21st-place finish with a time of 1:54.93 in the men’s 200 breast prelims on Saturday morning. His time of 1:54.93 was his third-fastest time this season and was just a little over a second slower than his school record mark of 1:53.08.

Matching Loschi’s 21st-place finish was Ferraro who touched the wall in a time of 1:43.01 in the men’s 200 fly prelims. Tech’s record holder in the event with a time of 1:41.26, wrapped up his first NCAAs with his best finish over his three events.

In the men’s platform dive, junior Matt Casillas recorded a score of 298.65 in the prelims to finish 31st overall.

Freshman Caio Pumputis was disqualified in the 200 breast event for a downward butterfly kick in the final 50 yards of the race, but still had a strong week while also competing in the 200 IM and 100 breast events.
