Alabama Swimming and Diving Sweeps Georgia Tech in Last Regular-Season Road Meet...

on Saturday, January 21, 2017

Crimson Tide Swimming:

The Alabama swimming and diving teams swept Georgia Tech Friday with the Crimson Tide women winning 150-91 and the UA men taking the top spot by a score of 145-96 in Atlanta.

"We're right about where we expect to be with three-plus weeks to go until the SEC Championships," UA head coach Dennis Pursley said.

The turnaround is quick for Alabama. After driving over and back on the same day for the Georgia Tech meet, the Crimson Tide returns home Saturday morning for a 10 a.m. CT meet with Florida State.

It is the Tide's Senior Day as well as it final regular-season meet. Senior day festivities start at 9:30 a.m. at the Alabama Aquatic Center. Admission is free and there will be multiple giveaways.

"We told the team that today was part one of the weekend and tomorrow's meet is part two. With it being at home and Senior Day, we're hoping and expecting tomorrow to be the better of the two days."

The Tide women opened the meet with Georgia Tech by winning the 200 medley relay when sophomore Katie Kelsoe, senior Bridget Blood combined with juniors Hannah Musser and Bailey Scott combined to post a 1:42.33.

They then closed the meet with the top finish in the 200 freestyle relay when Musser, junior Temarie Tomley, sophomore Morgan Fleming and Scott touched the wall with a 1:32.62.

Between the two relays, the Tide women tallied nine individual wins, with the Yellow Jackets taking two. Junior Mia Nonnenberg led the way for the Tide women, winning the 400 individual medley (4:20.09) and 500 freestyle (4:54.05).

Freshman Cameron Brown (1,650 freestyle), Scott (50 freestyle), sophomore Margy McCarthy (3-meter diving), Musser (200 butterfly), sophomore Sarah Helm (200 backstroke), senior Dakota Toner (3-meter diving) and sophomore Marian Yurchishin (200 breaststroke) also earned individual gold against the Yellow Jackets.

On the men's side of the meet, the Tide won the opening 200 medley relay when junior Luke Kaliszak, senior Anton McKee, sophomore Laurent Bams and senior Alex Gray posted a 1:27.83. The UA men then closed the meet by finishing first in the 200 freestyle relay when Kaliszak, Gray, sophomore Robert Howard and Bams touched with a 1:20.75.

In between the relays, Alabama's men won eight of 11 individual events, led by freshmen Daniel Kober and Zane Waddell, who won two events each. Kober won the 500 and 1,650 freestyles with times of 4:31.35 and 15.43.95, respectively.

Waddell won the 50 and 100 freestyles, touching the wall at 20.10 and 44.17, respectively.

Junior Mathew Adams (200 freestyle), McKee (400 individual medley), senior Brent Sagert (3-meter diving) and senior Connor Oslin (200 backstroke) also won individual events.
