THE FLATS – Georgia Tech senior diver Shannon Lumbra has been recognized by the ACC as the Female Diver of the Week, the conference announced Tuesday afternoon.
Lumbra earned the honor after winning both the 1- and 3-meter competitions against Penn State and Liberty. She posted NCAA qualifying marks in both events, scoring a 293.95 in the 1-meter and a 281.55 in the 3-meter. Lumbra currently holds the Georgia Tech school record of 312.70 for the 1-meter dive.
“I am very proud of Shannon,” head coach Courtney Shealy Hart said. “She is a very hard worker and her passion for the sport is displayed on a daily basis. She is a strong competitor that will get better every time she hits the boards.”
The swimming & diving teams will return to action October 16-17 with dual meets at West Virginia and Pittsburgh.
For the second time in program history, Georgia Tech and the CRC will serve as the host site for the NCAA Swimming & Diving Championships. The Women’s Championships will be held March 16-19, followed by the Men’s Championships March 23-26. Georgia Tech previously hosted the 2007 NCAA Championships and the CRC was also the site of the 1996 Summer Olympics swimming and diving competitions.
Admission to all home Georgia Tech swimming events are free and open to the public. Home events are held at the McAuley Aquatic Center located inside the Campus Recreation Center (CRC).
