The Alabama Crimson Tide were without two-time NCAA champion Kristian Gkolomeev in the NCAA’s 2015-2016 season opener, but didn’t miss a beat, sweeping all 28 swimming events to top Delta State on the road.
Classes have only been in session for a week or two at many schools, but the NCAA Swimming & Diving season waits for no man – the first dual meet of 2015-2016 takes place this Friday in Cleveland, Mississippi.
The Alabama Crimson Tide men and women came up with suffocating second-half performances to crush Cincinnati during the ‘Bama senior night and the team’s final tune-up before the SEC Championships.
The Alabama men looked outstanding in their win over Delta State, especially the team’s sprint group, though the Statesmen got in a few punshes of their own.
