Georgia Tech will host ACC swimming and diving championships


Georgia Tech will host the ACC men’s and women’s swimming and men’s and women’s diving championships that were recently relocated from North Carolina.

The Georgia Tech Aquatics Center will host the women’s swimming and diving and men’s diving event Feb. 13-16. The men’s swimming event will be held Feb. 27-March 2.

The ACC announced in September that it would relocate numerous conference championships from North Carolina because of concerns over the state legislature’s steps to potentially legalize discrimation against certain people.

The other new championship sites are:

Women’s soccer: Nov. 4 and 6 at MUSC Health Stadium in Charleston, S.C.

Women’s golf: April 13-15 at The Reserve Golf Club in Pawley’s Island, S.C.

Men’s golf: April 21-23 at Musgrove Mill Golf Club in Clinton, S.C.

Men’s and women’s tennis: April 26-30 at Rome Tennis Center at Berry College.

Baseball: May 23-28 at Louisville Slugger Field in Louisville.

With the exception of the Georgia Tech Aquatics Center, each of the sites will host an ACC Championship for the first time.

Georgia Tech has hosted the swimming and diving four times, most recently in 2015.
