Clemson Travels To Raleigh To Face Wolfpack

Jan. 26, 2006

Clemson, SC- The Clemson Men’s and Women’s Swimming and Diving teams will travel to Raleigh for a meet against North Carolina State Saturday. Both Clemson teams are coming off victories against ACC foe Georgia Tech. Sean Geary took home the win in the 1000 freestyle (9:26.75) and the 500 freestyle (4:36.82) to lead Clemson to a 133-100 victory. Kim Routh touched the wall first in the 1000 freestyle (10:08.23), 500 freestyle (5:02.85), and 200 freestyle (1:52.49) to spark the Lady Tigers to a 135-103 win.

The Clemson women’s team has won two straight meets for the first time all season. They are coming off a weekend where they beat Gardner-Webb on Friday night, and defeated Georgia Tech Saturday afternoon. The Lady Tigers are currently tied with N.C. State in the ACC standings. They are both 1-4 in the conference. Overall, Clemson has a 3-6 record, while the Wolfpack women sit at 2-5. Clemson is 17-12 all-time against N.C. State with their last win coming last season.

Clemson will look to hand the Wolfpack men their first conference loss of the season Saturday. N.C. State is 4-0, and 5-1 overall on the year. Their only loss came against South Carolina, a team that Clemson already defeated this season. The Tigers are 4-4 (2-3 ACC) with two meets remaining. With wins this week in Raleigh and next week at Duke, Clemson could finish with an above .500 conference record. The Tigers are 11-35 all-time versus the Wolfpack. However, Clemson has managed to win the past five meets.

The meet will start at 11:00 a.m. and will be held in N.C. State’s William Casey Aquatics Center.
