Swimming & Diving To Compete In Florida Atlantic Winter Invitational

Dec. 18, 2003

The Clemson men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams will travel to Boca Raton, FL to compete in the Florida Atlantic Winter Invitational on Saturday. The Tigers will take on Denver, Utah and host Florida Atlantic in the meet.

Clemson swept last year’s Invitational, with the men defeating Florida Atlantic and Utah and the women defeating Florida Atlantic, Utah and Northern Arizona. The Tigers will be facing Denver this year for the first time in school history but the men and women each hold perfect 10-0 records against Florida Atlantic and 1-0 marks against Utah.

The Clemson men (6-2, 2-1 ACC) most recently finished third at the Nike Cup on Nov. 20-22 with 545 points. Mark Henly led Clemson at the meet, winning the 200 back and placing third in the 200 IM. Eric Shulick took second place in the one-meter and third in the three-meter diving competitions.

The women’s team (4-3, 0-2 ACC) also competed at the Nike Cup and took third, scoring 521 points. Kim Routh set a new Clemson record at the meet, winning the 1650 free in 16:23.84. She broke 1984 silver medalist and former Tiger All-American Michele Richardson’s record of 16:29.97 set in 1992. Routh was the runner-up in the 200 and 500 free at the meet.

Saturday’s meet will begin at 11:00 AM.
