GREENSBORO, N.C. – The ACC Swimming & Diving Championship is underway in Greensboro and Georgia Tech’s 200 medley relay set the third-fastest time in school history Wednesday night.

ACC CHAMPIONSHIP CENTRAL

With 74 points, Tech sits ninth after the opening night of the women’s championship. Virginia leads with 128 points, followed by North Carolina (108) and NC State (108), Notre Dame (102) and Florida State (102) to round out the top five.

“It was an OK night, but we were hoping for a better start to the championship,” said head coach Courtney Shealy Hart. “As a team up and down the lineup, we’ll need to be ready to swim when the prelims start tomorrow morning.”

The Jackets’ 200 medley relay of Carly Sweeney, Catherine Richards, Kate Brandus and Erika Staskevicius put down the third-fastest time in Tech history on Wednesday night. The relay touched in a time of 1:42.14, which was good for 10th place and 34 points for the Jackets.

Senior Hailey White swam the lead off leg of the women’s 800 free relay, and she teamed with Staskevicius, Sarah Williford and Chiara Ruiu. That relay was clocked in 7:23.28, which was good for the fifth-fastest in school history, and placed the Jackets ninth in the event.

Action resumes Thursday morning at the Greensboro Aquatic Center at 11 a.m. with preliminary action in the 500 free, 200 IM and 50 free. Men’s 3-meter diving and women’s 1-meter diving will also be contested, with the swimming finals sets for 7 p.m.
