Tech’s men lost a close fight with FSU at the dual meet, 152-147, but saw seniors Caio Pumputis & Christian Ferraro earn NCAA B Standard marks in the 200 Breast and 200 Fly, respectively. The diving team swept the 3m competition against FSU as sophomore’s Carmen Woodruff and Ruben Lechuga both took home the Gold in that event.
Georgia enters the weekend with both the men’s & women’s teams undefeated at 3-0. The Bulldogs have collected wins against South Carolina, Florida and Auburn. Following their dual meet with Tech FSU’s squads each went on to beat TCU last weekend.
