Yellow Jacket Swimming and Diving Hosts Clemson in Key ACC Meet

Jan. 18, 2002

ATLANTA – The Georgia Tech men and women’s swimming and diving teams continue their dual meet seasons Saturday when they host ACC rival Clemson at 1 p.m. at Emory’s Woodruff P.E. Center.

Tech’s men’s squad enters the meet with a 3-2 overall record and a 1-1 ACC mark, while the first-year women’s team is 4-4 overall and 0-2 in conference action. Last time out, both squads dropped meets at nationally-ranked Alabama.

Clemson’s men (4-3, 2-1 ACC) enter the weekend ranked 22nd nationally, while the women’s squad is 3-4-1 overall and 1-2 against the ACC. The men’s team is coming off of a win over North Carolina.

“Clemson is coming off a great meet against North Carolina where their men’s team won by 62 points,” said Tech head coach Seth Baron. “In addition, Clemson is ranked No. 22 in the latest coaches poll, which is a first for their men’s team. They are on a roll and swimming very well.”

“Clemson’s women’s team has always been a strong team in the ACC,” added Baron. “They will continue their strong presence once again at this year’s championship meet.”

Tech’s men will be led by junior Shilo Ayalon, who has posted NCAA “B” cuts in both the 500- and 1650-yard freestyles, and senior David Laitala, who has met the same standard in both the 100 butterfly and 200 individual medley.

On the women’s side, freshmen Cara DeVinny and Anna Saum will lead the way, as each of them have posted several individual event wins in dual meets this season.

“We are looking forward to some great individual swims this weekend as we continue to prepare for the ACC Championships in late February,” said Baron.
