The University of Notre Dame men's swimming team is in ninth place after Thursday night, racing in the ACC Championship meet at the Greensboro Aquatic Center. The Irish advanced nine swimmers to the evening's finals in the 500 free, 200 IM, 50 free and 200 free relay events. They had the third most finals swimmers of any team racing, behind only defending Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) Champions North Carolina State and Louisville.
"I'm really proud of the guys, they're stepping up, and matching up with people and racing really hard," head coach Mike Litzinger said. "We had some lifetime best swims tonight, and having nine kids come back at night is really something special for us. We pretty much doubled our output from last year, and we're starting to run down some teams that were ahead of us with diving points. I'm looking forward to some really good swims tomorrow."
