Preview: FGCU swimming and diving at Georgia Tech Invitational
After hosting the FGCU quad meet Nov. 4 and 5, the FGCU swimming and diving team is slated to compete in the Georgia Tech Invitational in Atlanta, Georgia, from Thursday, Nov. 17 through Saturday, Nov. 19.
At the FGCU quad meet, FGCU came up with big wins over Florida Southern (288.5-58.5) and the University of West Florida (250-103) but fell short (149.5-203.5) against FSU.
Last season, the Eagles competed in the Georgia Tech Invite, and after impressive performances in the opening two days of the meet, the team finished strong, placing third among the eighteen competing universities with 850 points. Arkansas finished first with 1112 points while Alabama was close behind with 1022.5 points.
FGCU finished ahead of top competitors, like No. 46 South Carolina, Georgia Tech, Stanford, Clemson and Auburn among other well-known programs.
The Eagles hope to compete just as well, if not stronger, this time around, looking for that first place finish over prominent teams.
