THE FLATS – The Georgia Tech swimming & diving team faced three of the top programs in the country at McAuley Aquatic Center, and the Jackets were able to pull out a big win in the process.
Tech’s men’s team defeated Duke, who came into the meet as the No. 22 team in the country.
“Our men swam very well today,” said head coach Courtney Shealy Hart. “We beat Duke, who was No. 22 in the country. And give credit to Duke – it was a great race. It was just a fun college dual-meet. It’s always fun when it comes down to the last couple of races like it did today.”
Moises Loschi had the best performance of the day for the men, finishing in a tie for first in the 200 breaststroke event with a time of 1:59.63, good for an NCAA B-cut.
Iris Wang finished second in the women’s 100 freestyle event with a time of 50.38, leading the way for the women.
“I’m very proud of our team,” said Hart. “We competed hard. Our women came out of the gate ready to race, and I think they had one of their better meets of the season.”
