Yellow Jackets swimming coach, Courtney Shealy Hart has done a really good job of attracting top notch talent to The Flats.

The men’s class is headlined by All-American Andrew Kosic and NCAA qualifiers Nico van Duiin and Andrew Chetcuti.
According to the press release from ramblinwreck.com, this years Yellow Jackets swimming and diving team has not lost much from last season:
” The Ramblin’ Wreck only lost 20 individual points and 20 relay points from their ACC run. de Bruyn and Rieger are capable of making immediate impacts with individual and relay points.
Coach Hart, who will be going into her sixth season at the helm of the swim team, sounds really excited about her class going into the 2014 season:
“I’ve said that this is probably one of the best female recruiting classes that we’ve had in my time at Georgia Tech, I think Alex (Reiger) can help us immediately in the sprint events, and we are thrilled to keep local swimmers with the talent of Kira, Morgan, Megan and MaryKatherine close to home. I am really excited about our as a whole and can’t wait to get the season started.”
The prospects of a strong swimming and diving season this year at The Flats are looking very promising, especially with this crop of talent hitting the campus and Tech fans should share in Coach Hart’s excitement. The Yellow Jackets start swimming and diving season on the road at Penn State on October 3rd.
