FSU Swimming Teams Host Georgia Tech And North Florida

Oct. 27, 2000

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - The Florida State men's and women's swimming and diving teams are back in action at home this weekend. The men will host Georgia Tech, while the women will swim against the University of North Florida. Both meets will be held on Saturday, October 28th at 10 a.m. at the Stults Aquatic Center on the Florida State campus.

Saturday's meet will be the first time that the 2-0 Lady Seminoles will be facing UNF. The North Florida women's swimming and diving program is competing in its inaugurial season with head coach Beth Harrell leading the Osprey charge. The Osprey are 0-1 on the young season.

"For the women, North Florida is a young program and I don't expect our ladies to be tested too many times," Harper said. "But this will be a great opportunity for us to get more competition in and see how our depth is heading into Arizona next week. It will give us an idea of who's stepping up and swimming well."

Last season, the Seminole men's team defeated Georgia Tech in Atlanta, winning by the score of 210 - 88. Both FSU and Georgia Tech enter Saturday's meet with a 2-0 record.


"On the men's side, this should be a tough meet for us," Harper said. "Georgia Tech has really improved and has already gotten a couple of solid wins this season. They will come in and take this meet very seriously and try to knock us off. I think there are some events that we are expected to win and some that they are expected to win, so the undecided ones will really decide who wins the meet. It should be a great meet for the fans to come out and watch. Our men will have to be at their best. We'll have to have a great effort from top to bottom and everyone will have to step forward and be accounted for. Hopefully, we can come away with a win."

The Noles will travel to Tempe, Ariz., next weekend where the men will face-off against Arizona and SMU, while the women will compete against the Lady Wildcats.
