THE FLATS – The Georgia Tech swimming and diving teams celebrated Senior Day on Saturday and the Yellow Jackets led wire-to-wire in beating Darton College in the final regular-season meet of the season. The men defeated the Cavaliers, 136-82 and the women won, 127-42.

“Senior Day is always a special meet and an emotional one,” said head coach Courtney Shealy Hart. “We had some good swims today and now the real work begins as we start to prepare for the championship season. I like the mindset of our teams right now, and with good work over the next two weeks, I expect us to be very successful in Greensboro at the ACC Championship.”
