GSU swimmers, divers seek championship

    Georgia Southern's swimming and diving team (10-5) will travel to Athens to compete in the Coastal Collegiate Swimming Association (CCSA) Championship meet today through Saturday.
    The Eagles’ toughest competition is expected to be Florida Gulf Coast, Liberty and Davidson, the only conference foes GSU lost to during the season.
    GSU was last in the pool Jan. 28, when the Eagles competed at Davidson. The Eagles went 4-2 in the seven-team dual-meet. GSU had three first-place finishes by Amber Juncker and Sara Meisenhelder.
    Junker took first in both the 1,000 Free and 500 Free, while Meisenhelder placed first in the 3 Meter Dive. To go along with their first place finishes, the Eagles added six more top-three times.
    The Eagles have had two weeks to practice and prepare for the CCSU Championship meet and they are going into to the weekend with confidence.
    “We are certainly ready for the CCSA Championship meet. Our women are excited to compete,” GSU head coach Nate Kellogg said. “We have three simple goals for our team: perform well, compete for each other, and have fun.”
    The Eagles will look to improve on their fourth- place finish in last year’s CCSA Championship meet.  Last season’s CCSA Championship meet saw three Eagles receive All-Conference accolades. GSU hopes to earn even more this weekend.
