— The NC State swimming & diving team opened the second half of the season on Saturday in a double dual meet with Savannah College of Art & Design and the University of Georgia. The Wolfpack men's team topped SCAD, 212-43, and fell to UGA, 144-112. On the women's side, the Pack was victorious against SCAD, 190-62, but dropped its contest against UGA 151-99.

"We had a nice competition today with the University of Georgia and Savannah College of Art & Design," said head coach Braden Holloway. "We had some pretty good performances and we battled a top program like Georgia as best as we could."

The meet opened with the 200 medley relay, as the men's team composed of Ivan Kopas, Ian Bishop, Barrett Miesfeld and Joe Martin finished second with a time of 1:31.77. Zina Grogg, Lauren Poli, Ashlyn Koletic and Riki Bonnema teamed up to post a time of 1:44.64, good for third in the event.

Freshmen Christian McCurdy and Austin Snyder finished third and fourth in the 1000 freestyle with times of 9:30.37 and 9:32.00, respectively. Kristin Connors completed the event with a time of 10:29.80 on the women's side en route to claiming fourth place.

NC State claimed the top spot on the men's and women's side in the 800 freestyle relay. Julianna Prim, Marifrances Henley, Mariah Hamil and Connors combined to record a time of 7:31.32. For the men, Simonas Billis, Jonathan Boffa, David Williams and Brandon Kingston timed in at 6:39.85.

In the 100 backstroke, Hannah Freyman notched the fastest time (56.10) to claim first in the event for the women. Grogg also competed in the event and finished fourth with a time of 57.18 seconds. Ivan Kopas turned in the second best time for the men, timing in at 50.85 seconds.

"This is a great opportunity for us to come down and race against a team that we have not raced against in a very long time as a program," said Holloway. "I was encouraged by the way our team got after it out there today. We still have to do some things better in order to take that next step and we're excited about putting in the work to get there."

Wolfpack swimmers also occupied the top spots for men and women in the 100 breaststroke, as Ian Bishop and Payton Schrum both ended with a time of 56.69 seconds.

State had its best event of the day in the 100 butterfly, as the Pack occupied all three top spots on the women's side and two of the top three on the men's side. Grogg led the women with a time of 56.23, followed by Koletic and Bailey Woodling with times of 57.93 and 1:00.60, respectively. Miesfeld paced the men at 48.67 seconds.

NC State will return to action at home on Jan. 16 at 3 p.m. against Virginia Tech.
