Morgan and Miller Head to Men's NCAA Championships

March 24, 2005

ATLANTA – Junior Sam Morgan and freshman Rob Miller will both swim at the 2005 Men’s NCAA Swimming & Diving Championships for Georgia Tech, Thursday-Saturday, March 24-26, at the U of M Aquatic Center in Minneapolis, Minn.

“This will be a great meet,” said head coach Seth Baron. “For Sam, this is his third NCAAs in a row and he now has a tremendous amount of experience. Winning the 1650 at the ACC Championship has given him a lot of confidence. He was an NCAA All-American in the mile last year, placing 15th, and should be able to improve on that finish from a year ago.”

Morgan earned All-America honors in the mile a season ago and won his first Atlantic Coast Conference title on Feb. 26, with a lifetime-best time of 14:54.71. The Gainesville, Ga., native posted a NCAA `B’ standard time of 4:21.29 in the 500 free at the ACC meet to finish in third place and garner All-ACC honors. He will also swim the 400 IM after tallying a top-eight finish at the ACC Championships.

Miller, a native of Alpharetta, Ga., qualified for the NCAA meet in the mile with a lifetime-best time of 15:16.10 at the ACC meet, finishing in fifth place. Miller tallied a ninth-place finish in the 500 free at the ACC meet with a time of 4:27.11, finishing in 11th place.

“Rob’s best event this weekend will be the mile,” said Baron. “He will benefit from Sam’s experience at this meet and should be looking forward to a great competition. As a freshman, this is a great step for Rob and the future of his career and for Georgia Tech.”

The meet will get underway today with the preliminaries starting at 1 p.m. ET. Miller will compete in heat one, while Morgan will swim in heat 3. Complete results can be found at NCAA Swimming & Diving Results.
