The 2017 Men’s ACC Championships kick off today at the McAuley Aquatic Center in Atlanta, GA. Swimmers are slated to compete in the 200 medley relay and 800 free relay.
The biggest difference maker came on the backstroke leg, as freshman Coleman Stewart blazed his way to a 20.97 to give them the early lead.
The Wolfpack men are on the prowl for their third-straight ACC championship, and it doesn’t seem likely that anyone will be nipping too closely at their tails.
Blake Pieroni had a pair of wins as the Indiana Hoosier men continued their unbeaten streak in dual meets this season with a decisive win over Louisville.
On the women’s side, breaststroker Andee Cottrell took on an individual triple, collecting a pair of wins and a 2nd place finish.
It’s still a dogfight at the top, with defending champs Texas playing their cards closer to the vest, California exploding at the Georgia Invite and NC State continuing to swim good opponents very tough.
Breaststroker Carlos Claverie was a key player for the Cardinals on the men’s side, sweeping his specialty breaststroke races against Missouri All-American Fabian Schwingenschloegl.
Tonight, we’ll crown the world champions in the men’s 400 free, 200 fly, 200 IM, and 400 free relay, as well as the women’s 200 free, 400 IM, and 400 free relay.

Both the Louisville men’s and women’s teams continue to record NCAA A-cut times on Day Three of the Louisville Invitational in the 400 free relay.
At least one case has relevance to NCAA swimming in particular, as Louisville backstroker Grigory Tarasevich tested positive for meldonium in March 2016.
Tarasevich won the 100 back by over 4 seconds, surging to a 45.82 ahead of teammate Aaron Greene, who finished 2nd in 50.21.
