Men's Swimming Finishes Program-Best 19th At NCAA Championships

March 28, 2009

COLLEGE STATION, Texas – Noah Copeland, Ilia Ayzenshtok and Gal Nevo all turned in solid swims Saturday for the Georgia Tech men’s swimming team at the NCAA Championships held at the Student Rec Natatorium on the campus of Texas A&M University.

The Yellow Jackets completed the meet 19th in the nation, its best finish in school history. They recorded 38 points.

In the 200-back, Ayzenshtok turned in a solid 29th-place swim as he finished in 1:43.96. Copeland placed 35th in the 100-free with a time of 43.70, while Nevo just missed qualifying for the night session in the 200-breat. He finished with a time of 1:56.22, good for 19th place.

It was still a successful meet for Nevo, however. He leaves with All-American honors in the 200-IM and the 400-IM. Both times were Tech and ACC records, while his swim last night in the 400-IM was the second-fastest in NCAA history and third in the world.
