THE FLATS – The Georgia Tech men’s and women’s swimming & diving teams are both ranked in the CollegeSwimming.com Top 25 released Tuesday. The men are ranked 7th in the nation, while the women are ranked 21st.
The poll is a computer ranking based on the performances of teams over the previous six weeks. The men and women made the poll after stellar performances in Friday’s season-opening meet vs. Penn State and Liberty.
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).
