March 16, 2006

ATLANTA – Georgia Tech will serve as the host of the 2006 Men’s NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships, March 23-25, in the Georgia Tech Aquatic Center. The national championship meet will have preliminaries at Noon and finals at 7 p.m. each day.

Senior Sam Morgan will compete in his fourth consecutive NCAA meet, becoming the first Yellow Jackets to accomplish such a feat. Morgan garnered All-Ameirca honorable mention honors in each of the last two seasons in the 1650-yard freestyle. He finished second at the 2006 Atlantic Coast Conference Championships with a season-best time of 15:06.69. He will swim in the second to last heat of the mile on Saturday.

Evan Stowers, a sophomore from Independence, Ky., made history himself this season after finishing sixth on the platform at the NCAA Zone B Diving Championships to earn his first berth to the NCAA Championship meet. Stowers will be the first ever Tech diver at nationals and will compete on the one- and three-meter springboards, along with the platform.
