Men’s Swim-Dive Up to No. 19 National Ranking

CSCAA Polls (Jan. 23)

THE FLATS – For the fourth-consecutive poll, Georgia Tech men’s swimming and diving is ranked among the nation’s top 25, coming in this week at No. 19 in the CSCAA Division I Poll, the association announced Wednesday.

The Yellow Jackets continue to look impressive, splitting their opening dual meets of 2019 between Auburn and South Carolina. Now 4-2 on the year, Tech is the fourth-highest ranked ACC team and one of seven overall in the top 25.

For the men, Caio Pumputis still holds the nation’s second-fastest 100 IM time (48.65) and the third-fastest 200 breast performance (1:52.38). He also holds a top-10 time in the 200 IM (1:42.89 – 9th), 400 IM (3:43.00 – 9th) and a top-15 time in the 100 breast (52.53 – 13th).

Rodrigo Correia currently sports the fifth-fastest 100 back time (45.53) from a relay split that also doubled as a school record. The senior also holds a top-20 200 back time (1:40.94). Also holding a top-5 time is Christian Ferraro, who is currently ranked fifth overall in the country this season for the 200 fly with a 1:41.56.

The Yellow Jackets of course also still hold the third-fastest 200 medley relay time nationally. The Tech team of Correia, Pumputis, Ferraro and Corben Miles swam a 1:24.23 that also doubled as an NCAA A qualifying time. GT also holds the ninth-fastest 400 medley relay time of 3:06.87 (Correia, Pumputis, Ferraro and Darren Lim).

Georgia Tech’s final home meet is scheduled for Friday-Saturday, Jan. 25-26 at the McAuley Aquatic Center. Friday is Faculty Appreciation Day and is slated to begin at 3 p.m. Saturday will celebrate the Yellow Jacket seniors with Senior Day festivities beginning at approx. 10:40 a.m. and racing getting underway at 11 a.m. Both days will be broadcast live on ACC Network Extra.
