NCAA Men’s S&D Championships Begin Wednesday

March 22, 2016

THE FLATS – Georgia Tech’s McAuley Aquatic Center will serve as the host site for the 2016 NCAA Division I Men’s Swimming & Diving Championships, which will be held Wednesday through Saturday.

For the second time in program history, Georgia Tech and the McAuley Aquatic Center will serve as the host site for the NCAA Swimming & Diving Championships. Georgia Tech previously hosted the 2006 NCAA Championships and the CRC was also the site of the 1996 Summer Olympics swimming and diving competitions. Youssef Hammoud, Brad Homza, Alex Kimpel and Moises Loschi will represent Tech at this year’s competition.

“We’re very excited to have our men compete at NCAAs this week,” head coach Courtney Shealy Hart said. “They’ve worked very hard all year long, and it’s great to see these four guys rewarded for their effort. We saw a lot of records fall at last week’s meet, and I’m looking forward to seeing more fall this week.”

Hammoud, a senior from Alexandria, Egypt, will compete in the 50 free, 100 free and 100 fly after recording the team’s top times in the events this season. He qualified for the 100 free with a time of 42.92.

Kimpel put himself in position for an NCAA spot after breaking the school record in the 200 breast at the Yellow Jacket Championship Qualifier with a time of 1:54.91. He’ll also compete in the 100 breast and 200 IM.

Loschi also qualified in the 200 breast, the event in which he’d held the school record before Kimpel broke it at the qualifier. Loschi had set the mark after swimming a time of 1:54.95 at the ACC Championships. He’ll also compete in the 100 breast and 1650 free.

Homza qualified for the NCAA Championships when he placed fifth in the 1-meter competition at NCAA Zone Diving. He added the platform to his list of events with an eighth place finish at Zone Diving later that week. Homza was the ACC Champion in the platform event and was named ACC Diver of the Meet by the league’s coaches.

Competition will begin Wednesday at 6 p.m. ET with the 800 free relay. Live results can be followed at Additionally, fans can watch the action for Wednesday, Thursday and prelims Friday and Saturday at Friday and Saturday’s finals will be streamed live on ESPN3.
