MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – Junior Sam Morgan posted a time of 4:22.33 in the 500-yard freestyle, finishing in 24th place, to lead Georgia Tech on Thursday morning at the 2005 Men’s NCAA Swimming & Diving Championships held at the U of M Aquatic Center.

“Sam had a solid swim this afternoon,” said distance coach Stuart Wilson. “He’s kind of holding back for the mile, his best event. He went faster than he’s every gone in the 500 free at NCAAs today and is very confident.”

Freshman Rob Miller logged a 48th-place finish in the 500 free with a time of 4:32.16. Miller will compete in his main event, the 1650 free, on Saturday night.

“It’s a whole new ballgame for Rob,” said Wilson. “He’s gaining a lot of experience here and is still recuperating from an illness a couple of weeks ago.”

Morgan will swim the 400 individual medley on Friday, with prelims starting at 1 p.m. ET. Complete results can be found at NCAA Swimming & Diving Central.
