Tuesday November 5, 2013
Virginia Tech’s Arnett, North Carolina’s Moyer Also Recognized
GREENSBORO, N.C. (theACC.com) – Led by the efforts of sophomores Ozzie Moyer and Dominick Glavich, the North Carolina swimming and diving team earned two Atlantic Coast Conference weekly awards. Also earning recognition this week were Virginia Tech junior Kaylea Arnett and Notre Dame junior Emma Reaney.
On his way to his second Male Swimmer of the Week honor, Glavich won all three of his individual races and swam on a trio of relay teams, which scored points to power North Carolina past Louisville, as the No. 17 Tar Heels sprang a mild 186-161 upset over the No. 13 Cardinals. Glavich was responsible for 27 points for North Carolina in his individual swims alone, while also swimming legs on a second place and two third-place relays. He had season-best times in the 100 fly (48.42) and 200 IM (1:49.55) and had NCAA B standards in both the 100 fly and 200 fly (1:45.76). Glavich was just shy of his previous ACC leading time of 1:45.41 in the 200 fly. In addition, he moved into third place in the ACC in the 100 fly and now has the second fastest time this season in the 200 IM.
Moyer, the Male Diver of the Week, took first place in three-meter dive and second place in one-meter dive in the Tar Heels’ upset of the Cardinals. UNC went 1-2 on both boards in the meet, and its 26-4 edge in diving points was nearly the margin of victory. Moyer achieved an NCAA zone diving qualification on the three-meter board with a score of 373.80 points, his career high total. His previous best was 366.15 points as a freshman. His score also makes him the fifth highest scorer in the ACC this year in the event.
Reaney continued her strong junior campaign, as she collected her second Female Swimmer of the Week honor after three individual wins and a relay victory against Purdue. The Lawrence, Kan., native notched two B cuts in the two breaststroke events, as she recorded a time of 1:01.94 in the 100 meter and a 2:13.55 in the 200 meter event in the discipline. Reaney owns or has a share of five times that rank in the top five of multiple disciplines in the ACC this season.
Arnett received Female Diver of the Week honors after she helped Virginia Tech complete a weekend which included three team victories and four first-place individual finishes. On Nov. 2, the Spring, Texas, native recorded scores of 305.45 and 337.20 on the one-meter and three-meter dive, respectively. On Nov. 3, Arnett nearly bested her Saturday scores, which were of NCAA zone standard, but fell barely short. Arnett owns this season’s best one-meter score in the ACC and sits in fourth in the three-meter dive charts.
