ATLANTA – Sophomore All-American Vesna Stojanovska broke the school record in the women’s 200-yard butterfly (2:01.89) to lead the Georgia Tech women’s swimming and diving team to a second-place finish at the Georgia Tech Invitational on Sunday afternoon in the Georgia Tech Aquatic Center. The women edged No. 23 Tennessee 783 to 750 points and finished behind No. 3 Florida (869.5), while the men finished third with 838.5 points, behind third-ranked Florida (1055.5) and NC State (889).

“This has been a great three days of competition,” said head coach Seth Baron. “We had multiple school records on the women’s side and had NCAA `B’ cuts on both sides. Anytime you beat a nationally ranked program like Tennessee, it’s always exciting. The team and coaching staff are pleased with the performances and we have to continue to work towards ACC’s and NCAAs.”
