Florida State's - Landon Marzullo


ACC Players of the Week Presented by Chevrolet

GREENSBORO, N.C. - Florida State senior Landon Marzullo and North Carolina junior David MacDonald swept diving events at their respective meets en route to being recognized as the Atlantic Coast Conference Men's Swimming & Diving Co-Performers of the Week presented by Chevrolet. NC State sophomore Julianna Prim claimed two individual titles and has been selected the league's Women's Performer of the Week presented by Chevrolet.

Marzullo clinched first place in both the one- and three-meter diving events as Florida State defeated Clemson 187-113 in league dual meet action. The Columbus, Ohio, native led a FSU one-two-three finish in both events as the Seminoles outscored the Tigers 32-2 on the diving boards. The 403.65 on the three-meter was a personal season best for Marzullo, and he scored a 360.15 on the one-meter. Both marks qualified for NCAA Zone.

MacDonald was named Diver of the Meet at the 2011 SMU Swim Classic as he led the Tar Heels to a second-place finish in a field that included four teams ranked in the Top 13 nationally. The Darien, Conn., native trailed for most of the one-meter diving competition before rallying on the last two dives to win with a score of 325.57, edging the second place finisher by less than two points. On Saturday, MacDonald took the lead on the second round of diving and scored a season-high 395.63, winning by 51 points over the second place diver.

Prim took the top spot in both the 100 and 200 freestyle events. She registered a time of 51.87 in the 100 free and 1:50.80 in the 200. The Yadkinville, N.C., native also anchored the victorious 200 medley and 400 freestyle relays, which posted times of 1:46.01 and 3:28.28, respectively. Prim guided NC State to a 181-119 win over conference foe Georgia Tech, improving the Wolfpack to 5-1 overall and 2-1 in the ACC on the year.
