THE FLATS – For the third time this season, freshman diver Max Fowler has been recognized by the Atlantic Coast Conference as the men’s diver of the week, the league office announced Tuesday.
“This was a great test for Max with a large group of competitive divers!” diving coach John Ames said. “He was a little off in the prelims but turned things around in the finals for a solid win!”
En route to his third conference honor of the season, Fowler turned in a stellar performance at the UGA Fall Invite. In the men’s 3-meter championship dive, Fowler placed first with a score of 390.80 points. Fowler also finished fifth in the 1-meter dive with 349.55 points. Both dives were good enough for NCAA qualifying scores.
Georgia Tech swimming and diving will now transition to winter training before returning to competition after the New Year on Jan. 13 at Queens University.
Competitive Drive Initiative Turn 2
Looking to build on the success of last year’s Competitive Drive Initiative, Georgia Tech, the Georgia Tech Foundation and Georgia Tech athletics are partnering once again to launch Competitive Drive Initiative Turn 2. CDI Turn 2 has a goal of raising $2.5 million in new gifts to the Alexander-Tharpe Fund’s Athletic Scholarship Fund by Dec. 31, and Georgia Tech and the Georgia Tech Foundation will match eligible gifts to accelerate the impact for Tech athletics. Like last year, not only will gifts to CDI Turn 2 be matched, but so will the contributor’s benefits in the way of A-T Fund giving levels and priority points.
