Crimson Tide Swimming & Diving:


The Alabama swimming and diving team opened day two of the Georgia Tech Invitational right where it left off in day one, by winning a pair of relay titles in the McAuley Aquatic Center on the Georgia Tech campus. The Crimson Tide went on to win three individual races.

The women's 200 medley relay of sophomore Katie Coughlin, senior Bridget Blood along with juniors Hannah Musser and Bailey Scott opened the day by combining for a time of 1:39.29, bettering second-place Auburn by half a second.

The Tide men's 200 medley relay of seniors Connor Oslin and Pavel Romanov along with junior Luke Kaliszak and freshman Zane Waddell posted a 1:24.52, bettering second place Florida, and the rest of the field by more than 1.7 seconds.

The Tide women kept the winning going with the first individual race of the evening, when junior Mia Nonnenberg won the 400 individual medley relay with a time of 4:08.30, more than 2.5 seconds better than second place. Freshman Alexis Preski took fifth in the 400 IM with a time of 4:14.62, which ranks her fifth all-time at Alabama. Blood came back later in the meet to win the 100 breaststroke with a 1:00.82, to be the only swimmer in the meet under 1:01.

The Tide men went 3-4-5-7-10 in the 200 freestyle, led by sophomore Robert Howard's career-best time of 1:34.99, good for third place. Howard's mark ranks him seventh all-time at Alabama. Romanov was third with a 54.00 in 100 breaststroke while fellow senior Anton McKee was fifth with a 54.35.
