NC State, Virginia Win Relays on Day One
The 2017 ACC Women’s Swimming & Diving Championship got started in record-setting fashion on Monday evening as two ACC records fell at the McAuley Aquatic Center on the campus of Georgia Tech.
The NC State 200 medley relay (1:34.89) and Virginia 800 freestyle relay (6:56.21) squads set league records in the two swimming events of the night.
In diving action, Notre Dame’s Joe Coumos became the first diver in program history to win an ACC title with a victory on the 1-meter springboard, while Virginia Tech’s Ashlynn Peters was victorious in the 3-meter.
After three events in the women’s meet, North Carolina leads with 153 points, ahead of Louisville (149), Duke (144), and Virginia Tech (134).
Tuesday’s action gets underway at 10 a.m. with the prelims for the 500 free, 200 individual medley, 50 free, and women’s 1-meter, with doors open to spectators at 9 a.m. The finals for those events, in addition to the 200 freestyle relay, will begin at 6 p.m.
