GREENSBORO, N.C. – The Georgia Tech men’s swimmers recorded season bests in the 200 medley relay and 800 free relay on Wednesday at the 2016 ACC Men’s Swimming Championships.

After Day 1 of the ACC Championships, the Georgia Tech men are in 4th place with 131 points.

“Today was a very solid start for us,” said head coach Courtney Shealy Hart. “We had season bests in both of the relays, and I liked the way our guys competed. We’re looking forward to tomorrow morning, and we plan to post some fast times.”

In the first event of the day, the 200 medley relay quartet of Brian Woodbury, Ricky Lehner, Ben Southern and Youssef Hammoud placed ninth with a season-best time of 1:27.51. Tech’s previous top time in the event was 1:28.07, which was set by Woodbury, Moises Loschi, Hammoud and Noah Harasz at the Georgia Tech Invitational.

The second event was the 800 free relay, in which Rodrigo Correia, Mats Westergren, Dan Cohen Solal and Harasz posted a season-best time of 6:27.63. The quartet of Hammoud, Cohen Solal, Westergren and Harasz previously had the best time this season, posting a time of 6:30.53 at the Georgia Tech Invitational.
