March 28, 2015

IOWA CITY, Iowa – It was another All-American swim for Andrew Kosic on Saturday in the 100 free as action concluded with Georgia Tech placing 28th at the NCAA Men’s Swimming & Diving Championship at the University of Iowa.

Kosic brought his final NCAA Championship to a close in style by reaching the Consolation Final of the 100 free and placing 12th overall to earn All-American honors for the second time in the meet.

The senior from West Chester, Pa., who was fifth overall on Thursday in the 50 free, posted a time of 42.42 in the prelims to earn a spot in the Consolation Final. He followed that with a 42.66 on Saturday night to place 12th overall.

“I’m so proud of our men’s team this season,” said head coach Courtney Shealy Hart. “Kosic topped off the weekend with another All-American swim. We will miss these seniors for sure. They have done a remarkable job to set a new standard for our Georgia Tech program and are leaving us in great hands.”

Sophomore Brad Homza posted a score of 337.88, which was good for 22nd overall on the platform. The top 16 advanced to the finals and Homza finished just 21.87 points shy of 16th place.

Tech’s 400 free relay of sophomore Youssef Hammoud, freshman Noah Harasz, senior Nico van Duijn and Kosic raced to a 19th-place finish on Saturday by putting down a time of 2:53.65.

Tech completed the Men’s Championship with 19 points to finish 28th in the team standings. There were nine ACC teams among the 39 teams that scored points, and the Yellow Jackets finished ahead of Virginia Tech, Notre Dame and Virginia.

Texas claimed the 2015 men’s team national championship. NC State was the highest-finishing ACC team at eighth place overall.
