Georgia Tech Swimming & Diving Falls to Clemson 167-74

ATLANTA – The Georgia Tech men’s swimming and diving team won three events on Friday night, but dropped a 167-74 dual-meet decision to ACC rival Clemson in Clemson, S.C.

The Yellow Jackets (3-2, 0-2 ACC) were led in the meet by sophomore Shilo Ayalon, who continued his dominance of the distance freestyle events by remaining undefeated in both the 500 and 1,000-yard freestyle. Against the Tigers, Ayalon opened the meet by winning the 1,000-yard event with his time of 9:27.83, which was nearly 11 seconds faster than the next finisher, Travis Taylor (9:38.11) of Clemson. In the 500-meter race, Ayalon again turned in an outstanding performance winning in a time of 4:36.80, seven seconds faster than Brent Hitchcock of Clemson.

Tech’s other event winner was sophomore Tomonori Tsuji, who won the 200-yard breaststroke in a time of 2:04.56, winning the race by just under four seconds.

The Jackets will take next weekend off before returning to action on December 1-3, when they travel to Athens, Ga., to compete in the Georgia Fall Invitational.
