THE FLATS – The 2016-17 Men’s and Women’s Atlantic Coast Conference Swimming and Diving Championships will be held at the McAuley Aquatic Center in February, the ACC office announced on Tuesday morning.
The women’s swimming and diving championships, as well as the men’s diving championships will be held over a three-day span from Feb. 13-16. The men’s swimming championships will take place from Feb. 27 to Mar. 2. Georgia Tech welcomed the ACC Swimming and Diving Championships most recently in 2015 and also served as host for the events in 2005, 2008 and 2011.
McAuley Aquatic Center hosted the 2015-16 NCAA Men’s and Women’s Swimming and Diving Championships last season, as well as the NCAA Zone Diving Qualifier. It was the second time in program history that the NCAA Championships were hosted in the facility, the first time being in 2006. In the summer of 2016, it played host to the 2016 U.S. Olympic Swimming and Diving teams before they competed in Rio.
The aquatic center, located on the west side of the Georgia Tech campus was the site of the swimming and diving competition for the 1996 Centennial Olympic Games. It was named the “best collegiate competition swimming pool” by College Ranker in March 2016.
The ACC will announce additional details, including ticket information for all championships, at a future date. Please continue to check theACC.com.
