The UNC men and women’s swimming and diving team have not been having the season they hoped for, dropping three double dual meets.
They first dropped a dual to Georgia, with the women falling 179-119 and the men 162.5-132.5. Next in a two day swim meet against Tennessee the women held tight for the first day but couldn’t hold on dropping the meet 205-167 and the men fell 216-156. In their most recent meet versus Louisville, both squads lost a two day bout with the women falling 209-144 and the men 241-114.
In the spotlight for the Tarheels is diver Elissa Dawson, who was named as the ACC Women’s Diver of the Week, after her performance against Louisville. Dawson placed first in the three-meter dive (374.64) and second in the one-meter (295.43). Both of those scores met NCAA Zone A qualifying marks. This marks the third time Dawson has been awarded the ACC Women’s Diver of the Week award.
The Tarheels are looking to snap their loosing streak at the NCSU/GAC Invitational in Greensboro, North Carolina which starts November 17 ending on November 19.
