THE FLATS – The Georgia Tech swimming and diving team completed the first day of the Georgia Tech Invitational at McAuley Aquatic Center on Thursday night. The men are currently in 3rd with 287.5 points, while the women are in 6th at 92 points.

The day was highlighted by the efforts of Noah Harasz, Youssef Hammoud, Edwin Zhao and Robert Borowicz, who combined to form the winning 200 freestyle relay team.

In individual events, the Jackets had six total participants who qualified for A-Final races, meaning they finished in the top-10 in preliminary events. Yuval Safra led the way individually, finishing 3rd in the men’s 500 freestyle.

The women were led by Chiara Ruiu, who finished 11th in the women’s 500 freestyle preliminary, setting a career-best time of 4:54.54.
