THE FLATS – Georgia Tech swim and dive’s Deniz Ertan has been selected to compete at the 2023 NCAA Division I Women’s Swimming and Diving Championships. The championships will be held March 15-18 at the Allan Jones Aquatic Center in Knoxville, Tenn. and the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, will serve as the host.

Selected divers will be announced on Sunday, March 12 after the Zone Diving Championships.

Ertan qualified in three events; the 1650 free, 500 free and 400 IM. At the 2023 ACC Championships, Ertan was victorious in the 1650, 500 free and broke her own school record in both events. She also qualified for the ‘A’ final of the 400 IM and finished eighth overall in the event.
