Tech Kicks off NCAAs with School-Record Relay

Day 1 Results

AUSTIN, Texas – Georgia Tech men’s swimming started off its week at the NCAA Championships with a bang, breaking the school record in the 800 free relay at the Lee & Joe Jamail Texas Swimming Center on Wednesday night.

The 19th-ranked Yellow Jackets swam a 16th-place 6:17.00 in the race, more than two seconds faster than their season-best time behind strong swims by Rodrigo Correia, Caio Pumputis, Colt Williamson and Christian Ferraro as the four earned honorable mention All-America honors.

To start off the record-breaking relay, Correia also broke his own 200 free program record by splitting 1:33.28 to open the gates.

Georgia Tech will return for the second day of Nationals when it competes in the 200 IM and 400 medley relay on Thursday, March 28. Prelims begin at 11 a.m. ET and finals begin at 7 p.m.
