ATLANTA, Ga. (Dec. 2) – Georgia Tech’s men’s swimming & diving program has signed one recruit to a National Letter of Intent during the fall signing period, head coach Seth Baron has announced.
Chris Biedrzycki of Charlotte, N.C., has signed to enroll at Georgia Tech for the 2000-01 academic year. Biedrzycki swims for Myers Park H.S. and also Mecklenburg Aquatic Club, which produced current Tech swimmer James Nozar.
“We are very pleased to have signed Chris,” said third-year head coach Seth Baron, who has guided Tech to a 14-16 record while rebuilding the Yellow Jacket program. “He will add great depth and young leadership to our program and is very familiar with Atlantic Coast Conference swimming as his brother is on North Carolina’s team. He will contribute in the individual medley and breaststroke for us, and we are looking forward to seeing him continue to improve and have a great senior year of swimming.”
He helped Myers Park finish second in the North Carolina High School Swimming and Diving State Championship Meet a year ago. Individually, he placed second in the 100 breaststroke and third in the 200 individual medley and was voted team MVP following the season. He has been selected a Scholastic all-America three times by U.S. Swimming. Last year, in the spring and summer Southeastern Junior National Championships, he registered two top-10 and four top-20 finishes. He helped Mecklenburg place sixth and seveth, respectively, in the team standings.
Georgia Tech is currently 4-2 this year and will sign the bulk of its 2000-01 class during the spring period.
