Oct. 20, 2005

ATLANTA – The Georgia Tech men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams will travel to College Park, Md., for an Atlantic Coast Conference Quad Meet, Friday-Saturday, Oct. 21-22, in UMD’s Campus Recreation Center. The meet will feature Florida State, Maryland and Virginia Tech, along with the Yellow Jackets, and will begin at 5 p.m. on Friday.

“This is a great meet every year,” said head coach Stuart Wilson. “It gives our athletes a chance to compete in the pool that will host the 2006 Men’s and Women’s ACC Championships.”

The Jacket men dropped two tough meets against SEC powers Georgia (135-108) and Tennessee (136-97). Several Jackets appear in the ACC’s Top 10 times after week one, led by freshman Noah Copeland who ranks second in the 200-yard freestyle with a time of 1:42.14. Junior Ryan Bishop ranks fourth in the 200 IM and 200 breaststroke with times of 1:53.04 and 2:06.74, respectively.

Junior diver Tony Burkhardt leads the conference with a NCAA Zone qualifying score of 318.00 on the three-meter springboard and ranks second on the one-meter board with a tally of 303.25.

The Yellow Jacket women dropped a 136.5-89.5 decision to the defending national champion Georgia Bulldogs last Friday in the Georgia Tech Aquatic Center. Elizabeth Stowe paced the Jackets with a second-place finish in the 1000 freestyle. Stowe, a sophomore from Lawrenceville, Ga., ranks second in the league with a time of 10:03.65.

Senior co-captain Ashley Kracke ranks amongst the league leaders in the 100 and 200 backstroke events, logging times of 59.97 and 2:06.61, respectively.

Sophomore Stephanie England holds the league’s second-best mark on the three-meter board with a NCAA Zone and lifetime-best mark of 292.73, while senior Laurissa Prystaj scored 256.35 on the one-meter board, placing her fourth in the league.
