ATLANTA – Senior Meghan DeVinney and freshmen Caroline Jones and Mari McLeod registered a pair of first-place finishes to lead the Georgia Tech (2-4, 1-3 ACC) women’s swimming and diving team to a sweep over NC State (2-2, 1-2 ACC), 137-106, and New Orleans, 148-96, on Saturday morning in the Georgia Tech Aquatic Center. The men’s team (2-4, 2-2 ACC) dropped a 134-107 decision to the Wolfpack (4-0, 3-0 ACC).

“It was great to see our women swim well and notch two wins under their belt,” said head coach Stuart Wilson. “We lack a little depth on the men’s side, but competed after training really hard the last couple of weeks.”

Jones clocked a season-best time of 1:51.92 in the women’s 200-yard freestyle and McLeod swam a season-best time of 52.71 in the 100 free to capture their respective events. DeVinney posted a season-best time of 58.39 to win the women’s 100 butterfly.

Freshman Noah Copeland tallied a first-place finish for the men in the 200 free with a time of 1:41.73. Junior Tony Burkhardt won the men’s three-meter diving event with a NCAA Zone qualifying mark of 340.65.

The women’s 400 medley relay team of Jones, Laura Heiser, DeVinney and McLeod tallied a season-best time of 3:57.39 to finish first. The women’s 400 free relay team of Natanya Harper, Vesna Stojanovska, Elizabeth Stowe and McLeod finished first with a time of 3:33.94.

Harper swam a season-best time of 24.04 in the women’s 50 free to finish first and clocked a season-best time of 52.99 in the 100 free to finish in second place for the Jackets. Junior Alison Walker finished first in the women’s 100 breaststroke with a time of 1:07.29.

Stowe and Stojanovska swept the women’s 500 free with times of 5:01.10 and 5:05.92, respectively.

In the 1000 free, Tech finished second and third in the men’s and women’s events. Senior All-American Sam Morgan tallied a season-best time of 9:33.99 to finish second on the men’s side, while Stowe finished second in the women’s event with a time of 10:04.95. Sophomores Amanda Gannon and Rob Miller finished third with times of 10:35.86 and 9:37.95, respectively.

Junior Amanda Korell and freshman Meghan Martinez tallied second-place finishes for the Yellow Jackets. Korell clocked a season-best time of 4:36.81 in the 400 IM and Martinez posted a time of 58.58 in the 100 fly.

Redshirt freshman Chris Ewald swam a season-best time of 4:34.37 in the men’s 500 free to tally a second-place finish for the Jackets.

The Yellow Jacket men will host No. 11 Minnesota in the GTAC next Saturday, Nov. 12. The dual meet is slated for a 1 p.m. start. The women will return to the pool on Nov. 18-20, for the annual Georgia Tech Invitational.
