THE FLATS – Georgia Tech junior diver Brad Homza earned Honorable Mention All-America honors Thursday, finishing 11th in the 1-meter event at the NCAA Swimming & Diving Championships. His performance puts the Jackets in 27th place with five points.
Homza finished with a score of 365.25 in the B final after finishing with a score of 358.20 in the prelims.
“This was a great day for Brad,” said diving coach John Ames. “Springboard is not his best event, and he really competed well. He was as good as we hoped he could be and is continuing to have a great season.”
The Jackets also had two swimmers in action on Thursday. Alex Kimpel finished 47th in the 200 IM with a time of 1:48.83, while Youssef Hammoud finished 42nd in the 50 free with a time of 20.01. Kimpel will compete in the 100 breast Friday, and Hammoud will compete in the 100 fly.
Friday’s prelims will begin at 10 a.m. ET and live streaming is available at www.atlantaswimming.com/Webcast
