ATLANTA – The Georgia Tech Swimming & Diving teams will head back out on the road for its second straight Atlantic Coast Conference meet in as many weeks. This weekend, the Yellow Jackets will head south to Tallahassee, Fla., to take on Florida State, Saturday at 10:00 a.m.
“We are looking forward to going down to Tallahassee and racing against one of the best team in the ACC,” head coach Stu Wilson said. “They are a well coached team and we’re looking forward to the challenge.”
The Yellow Jackets are coming off a split at Clemson last weekend. The men’s team (2-0, 1-0 ACC) won, while the women’s team (2-1, 0-1) lost to the Tigers in South Carolina. Senior Noah Copeland and junior Gal Nevo won two events apiece for the Yellow Jackets, while junior Hannah Krimm swept both diving events for the second time in as many weeks. Copeland was victorious in both the 200-free (1:41.61) and 100-free (46.50), while Nevo won the 200-fly (1:53.26) and 200-IM (1:54.77).
Krimm scored 268.20 points on the one-meter board and 273.68 points on the three-meter board. Krimm, an All-American last season, has already qualified for the NCAA Zone Meet after her performance against Florida Atlantic and Florida Gulf Coast last month.
