Sophomore from Italy earns ACC honor
THE FLATS – Georgia Tech sophomore Moises Loschi has been named ACC Male Swimmer of the Week, the conference announced Tuesday afternoon.
Loschi, who came to Tech from Venegazzu, Italy, posted three individual victories and two additional top three finishes over the weekend. He touched first in the 400 IM in Georgia Tech’s dual meet against West Virginia, finishing in 4:00.16. He then finished second in the 100 breast with a time of 56.43. Against Pitt, Loschi finished first in both the 1000 free (9:15.90) and the 200 breast (2:01.61), before finishing third in the 200 IM (1:53.39). He has registered six individual wins this season.
“Moises has worked especially hard lately, so it’s good to see all of the effort pay off,” head coach Courtney Shealy Hart said. “We look forward to seeing what he can accomplish in the coming weeks.”
The Yellow Jackets will continue their season on November 4th when they travel to Athens to take on rival Georgia.
