GREENSBORO, N.C. – The Georgia Tech men’s swimming team heads to Greensboro for the 2014 ACC Championship that begins Wednesday night and the Yellow Jackets are looking to improve on last year’s sixth-place finish.
Action is underway at 6 p.m. Wednesday night at the Greensboro Aquatic Center. A live video stream of event finals will be available on theACC.com Thursday through Saturday from 7 to 9 p.m.
“The ACC Men’s Championship is always a great event are we’re looking forward to it,” said head coach Courtney Shealy Hart. “Our divers did a good job and our goal is to build on that with strong swimming this week. Our Fall Invitational was a great tune-up for the ACCs and we want to be faster and stronger this week.”
Two relays are on tap Wednesday evening — 200 medley relay followed by the 800 free relay. Thursday begins the first day of preliminary action, commencing at 11 a.m. with the 500 free, the 200 IM and the 50 free.
Friday’s swimming events include the 400 medley relay, 400 IM, 100 fly, 200 free, 100 breast and the 100 back.
Everything wraps up Saturday with the 200 back, 100 free, 200 breast, 200 fly, 1,650 free and 400 free relay.
One change of note in this year’s Championship is the addition of the scoring of all 24 competitors competing in a swimming final. In previous years, only the top 16 competitors received points that counted toward their team’s total.
There is no charge for admission to the 2014 ACC Swimming & Diving Championships. Parking is available for $8 or for $15 for a session pass.
