Tech Women's Swimming and Diving Opens First-ever ACC Championships Thursday

Feb. 20, 2002

ATLANTA – After winning five dual meets in its inaugural season, the Georgia Tech women’s swimming and diving team (5-6, 0-4 ACC) will compete in its first-ever Atlantic Coast Conference Championships beginning Thursday in College Park, Md.

“This is a very exciting and historical meet for Georgia Tech,” said Tech head coach Seth Baron. “Our women have had a wonderful dual meet season, and we know that their spirits are very high going into this championship meet. We know they will represent Tech with a lot of pride.”

Leading Tech into the meet will be freshman Cara DeVinny, who currently holds five school records and owns the team’s lone NCAA provisional mark, a time of 4:24.71 in the 400-yard individual medley. She enters the meet ranked eighth in the league in this event.

Freshman Amy Sutton’s top mark in the one-meter diving (257.70) ranks ninth in the conference. She is also the Jackets top threat in the three-meter event.

Classmate Anna Saum should also make an impact, as she holds Tech records in the 100 free, 100 fly, 100 back and 200 back.

Preliminaries on Thursday, Friday and Saturday are slated for 11 a.m., while finals each day will start at 7 p.m.

All-conference honors will be awarded to all first, second and third-place finishers in individual events, as well as winning relays.

North Carolina is the two-time defending conference champion.

“This is going to be a fun and exciting championship for everyone involved. This is just the first step to what will be a wonderful history for women’s swimming at Tech.”
