Homza Finishes 14th in Platform Event

March 27, 2016

THE FLATS – Georgia Tech diver Brad Homza earned Honorable Mention All-America honors Saturday night, as he finished 14th in the platform diving competition at the 2016 NCAA Men’s Swimming & Diving Championships. The Jackets finished 37th with eight points.

Homza, a junior from Austin, Texas, finished 14th in the platform competition with a B final score of 335.40 after scoring 378.10 in the prelims. Homza recovered from low scores on his second and third prelim dives to nearly make the A final.

“Brad struggled early in the prelim, but fought hard to get back in the contest,” diving coach John Ames said. “It was exciting to watch. He just missed making the A final, but he was happy to make another B final. It was a very good meet for Brad, putting points on the board for Tech.”

The Jackets also had two participants in the pool on Saturday. Youssef Hammoud finished 27th in the 100 free with a time of 43.30, while Alex Kimpel finished 24th in the 200 breast with a time of 1:56.37.
