Georgia Southern Swimming and Diving Plays Host to North Florida
STATESBORO, Ga. - The Georgia Southern Swimming and Diving team (12-4) plays host to Coastal Collegiate Swimming Association (CCSA) foe North Florida Saturday, January 29th, at the Recreation Activity Center (RAC). The 16-event meet begins at 12 p.m. and admission is free. This will be the Eagles' final competition before the CCSA Championships in Athens, Ga., Feb. 17-19th.
"In our last dual meet of the season, we are looking for sharper details, specifically turns, underwater breakouts and finishes," stated Head Coach Nathan Kellogg. "As our rests set in, we should be able to execute a little better than we have in the past few weeks."
The execution by the Eagles in their home pool has been staggering as Georgia Southern holds an all-time 14-3 record at The RAC. The Eagles added to that record this past October when the team defeated College of Charleston (128-99) and SCAD (139-73).
This will be the last meet at home for seniors Carolina Bevillard (Bishop, Ga.), Ali Campbell (Ft. McMurray, Alberta Canada), Meredith Fehr (Matthews, N.C.), Lindsay Goodman (Knoxville, Tenn.), Kristen Haudenschild (Woodbridge, Va.) and Laurie Stephens (Atlanta, Ga.). They will be honored prior to the start of the meet.
"Home meets are always special for us, but they mean more when it's our seniors last meet at home." added Kellogg.
Georgia Southern is coming off a trip to Davidson, N.C., where it defeated five of its six opponents in the seven-team Davidson meet. The Eagles outscored fellow CCSA members Campbell, Howard, Liberty, North Carolina A&T and Radford. Davidson, playing host to the 16-event meet at the Cannon Natatorium, was the only team to top GSU. Georgia Southern recorded 13 top-three finishes throughout the day, including five event victories.
