QUOTABLE: HEAD SWIMMING COACH McGee Moody
"We were really good today. North Carolina is a great team; their women are in the top 20 in the nation. Our men came in and fought hard. Honestly, they put the meet away pretty quickly in terms of going into the last break before the 200 IM. I was comfortable with where we were.
QUOTABLE: HEAD DIVING COACH Todd Sherritt
"We had a great day today, no question about it. First of all, Grant Summers winning both boards was incredible. I'm impressed where he's at right now as a freshman, especially against an experienced team. It wasn't completely surprising, but he really stepped up. I'm very proud of him, and he's made a lot of changes and shown a lot of improvement.
UP NEXT FOR CAROLINA
South Carolina will be back in the Carolina Natatorium on Sat., Nov. 4 when they take on Auburn in their second SEC meet this season. Diving will begin at 10 a.m. and swimming will follow at 11 a.m..
