Florida State’s Goodman Also Nabs Award
GREENSBORO, N.C. (theACC.com) – The North Carolina swimming and diving program earned three ACC swimming and diving weekly awards after its performance this past weekend. Individuals earning awards for the Tar Heels were Stephanie Peacock, Dominick Glavich and Jack Nyquist. Also earning honors this week was Florida State’s Kelsey Goodman.
Glavich, who was named the ACC’s Male Swimmer of the Week, won three of his four butterfly races, as Carolina split dual meets with Texas, last year’s fifth-place finisher at the NCAA Championships, and TCU. Glavich had a pair of NCAA “B” qualifying times in the 200 fly, as he won that event in both meets. He posted his fastest unshaved and untapered times in both events, going 1:45.41 in the 200 fly and 48.65 in the 100 fly. Glavich also swam on both relays in each of the meets, helping lead his “B” 400 medley relay to a fourth-place finish against Texas and his “B” 400 free relay to a third-place finish against the Longhorns. Against TCU, he led his “B” 200 free relay to a third place finish and the Tar Heels’ “B” 200 medley relay to a third-place finish.
Peacock, the ACC Female Swimmer of the Week, had a terrific weekend, competing in four meets in three days, leading Carolina against Texas and TCU in dual meet competition and against a field of five other nationally prominent programs in the SMU Swimming & Diving Classic. Peacock won three of her four dual meet events on the weekend, taking the 1000-yard freestyles against both Texas and TCU, as well as the 500-yard freestyle against Texas. She also had a fourth-place finish in the 200 free against Texas, just minutes after finishing the 1000 free. In the SMU Classic, she took a second-place finish in the 500 free in a season best 4:42.55 and placed sixth in the 400 IM with a career best time of 4:15.37. Altogether, she had three NCAA “B” standards on the weekend.
Nyquist, who was tabbed the ACC’s Male Diver of the Week had an excellent weekend of diving competition, as he won three of four diving events in dual meets against Texas and TCU. Against the Longhorns’ powerhouse diving program, which included 2013 NCAA first-team All-America Cory Bowersox, Nyquist finished fourth in the one-meter diving competition. Nyquist won the three-meter diving competition against the Longhorns with a score of 436.58, a score 20.10 points more than the second-place diver. He beat a pair of 2013 NCAA national qualifiers, Cory Bowersox and Will Chandler in winning the event. Nyquist also swept the diving events against TCU, winning the three-meter competition by 99.15 points and capturing the one-meter event by 43.93 points.
Finally, Goodman, the ACC Female Diver of the Week was dominant on the board on Friday in Florida State’s seventh-straight victory over Florida Gulf Coast. On 1-meter, Goodman turned in one of her career best scores, with a 322.20 just before she broke the school record on 3-meter with a total of 373.05. The Moultrie, Ga., native topped senior Ariel Rittenhouse’s 2013 ACC Championship score of 369.55.
