COLUMBIA, S.C. -- The South Carolina swimming and diving program signed nine student-athletes during the early signing period, head coach McGee Moody announced Thursday.
The Gamecocks inked swimmers Joshua Clothier (Frisco, Texas), Robert Gilchrist (Toronto, Ontario), Samuel Lynch (Ocean Township, N.J.) and Evan Mahoney (Bayville, N.J.) and diver Jordan Gotro (El Dorado Hills, Calif.) to the men's team.
On the women's side, Megan Carlson (Xenia, Ohio), Elizabeth Maltby (Midlothian, Va.), Caroline Petrone (Brielle, N.J.) and Taylor Vincent (Woodbridge, Va.) signed to swim for the Gamecocks.
"We are very pleased with the class we have signed during the fall signing period," Moody said. "The men will have more top end point scorers, and with the women we have addressed some depth issues in certain events. We will continue to work through the spring to put together the strongest class possible."
