FLORIDA TECH SWIMMING
Florida Tech is looking to build off of an incredibly successful year in 2015-16, when the Panthers claimed six medals at the Sunshine State Conference Championships, including a gold for Nir Barnea in the 50 free.
FIT sent seven swimmers to the NCAA Championships in 2016, with the 200 and 400 free relay teams earning All-American honors after respective sixth and eighth-place finishes.
The season will kick off on the road at Saint Leo this Friday night, with the women’s team also facing off against Lynn at the Marion Bowman Aquatics Center.
One week later on Oct. 21, the Panthers will take part in a tri-meet against SSC rival Florida Southern and NAIA member Keiser in Lakeland, Fla.
