Tech Opens New Year With Loss To Alabama

Jan. 10, 2004

Results

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. – Sophomore Laura Heiser (Sinking Spring, Pa.) picked up her first win of the season in the 200-yard breaststroke (2:26.85) as the Georgia Tech women’s swimming and diving team fell to Alabama (3-3), 144-99, this afternoon in the Alabama Aquatic Center. The men’s swimming and diving team fell to the Crimson Tide (3-3) by a 141-100 score. Both Yellow Jacket squads fall to 3-4 on the season.

“Obviously we are disappointed in the end result,” said head coach Seth Baron. “We had some very close races where they just out touched us at the end. We have been training really hard and it showed today because we were a little bit tired. But the hard training will pay off when it comes time for the ACC Championships.”

The Tech 400 medley relay team of Anna Saum (Toledo, Ohio), Heiser, Elizabeth Foster (Frankfort, Ky.) and Moeko Wallis (Columbus, Ga.) posted a time of 3:53.87 to capture the relay race.

Sophomore Megan DeVinney (Avondale, Ariz.) tallied a first-place finish in the 200 butterfly for the Jackets with a time of 2:04.31. Wallis posted a time of 24.38 in the 50 free to finish second in the event to pace the women.

Leading the men for the Yellow Jackets was sophomore Sam Morgan (Gainesville, Ga.). Morgan picked up a win for the Rambling Wreck in the 1000 free race with a time of 9:26.69.

Freshman diver Tony Burkhardt (Phoenix, Ariz.) registered a win on the three-meter board for the Jackets, scoring 300.75 points. Freshman Ryan Bishop (Signal Mountain, Tenn.) tallied a season-best time of 1:52.07 in the 200 individual medley, finishing second in that event for Tech.

Junior Amy Sutton (Hoover, Ala.) had a NCAA Zone Diving qualifying mark on the three-meter board with a score of 270 to finish third in the event.

Georgia Tech will return home for an Atlantic Coast Conference dual meet with Florida State next Saturday, Jan. 17. The conference swim meet will be held in the Georgia Tech Aquatic Center at Noon. All home swim meets can be followed on www.ramblinwreck.com.
