Feb. 22, 2011

ATLANTA, GA – The Clemson men’s swimming team will take part in the 2011 Atlantic Coast Conference Championship Meet at the Georgia Tech Aquatic Center in Atlanta, GA. The four-day meet will begin on Wednesday, February 23 and conclude on Saturday, February 26.

“We are looking forward to the opportunity for our guys to showcase themselves this weekend,” Head Coach Christopher Ip said. “We have a very balanced team and a very strong junior class that is hungry to compete and do well. The guys know what they have to do in order to put up a good score.”

The schedule of events will be similar in nature to the women’s event last weekend. Wednesday will feature a pair of relays — the 800 medley and 200 freestyle — beginning at 6 p.m.

The last three days will include preliminary heats at 11 a.m. and finals that will start at 7 p.m. Thursday will feature the 500 freestyle, 200 individual medley, and 50 freestyle, as well as the 200 freestyle relay.

On Friday, there will be five individual events contested–including the 400 individual medley, 100 butterfly, 200 freestyle, 100 breaststroke, and 100 backstroke–as well as the 400 medley relay. Saturday’s action will include the 200 backstroke, 100 freestyle, 200 breaststroke, 200 butterfly, 1650 freestyle, and 400 freestyle relay.

The Tigers are expecting a big event from sprinter Eric Bruck, who ranks third in the conference in the 50 freestyle and is in the top 15 in the 100 freestyle. Chris Dart is also ranked fourth in the ACC in the 100 backstroke and seventh in the 200 individual medley for the season.
