NC State Wins 2015 ACC Men’s Swimming & Diving Championship (TheACC.com)

For the 25th time in league history, NC State is ACC Men’s Swimming & Diving champion.

The Wolfpack has won 22 outright championships and held a share of the team title three more times. The championship is the first for NC State since 1992

The Wolfpack finished the meet by winning 10 of the 21 events, including four of the five relays. In total, Wolfpack swimmers combined to win 22 medals.

“These guys worked so hard for this and we saw all this support from our alumni, our families and friends this week,” said NC State coach Braden Holloway. “They were out here since Wednesday knowing we had a chance to bring it back [to Raleigh].

“We knew it would be a tough fight with a lot of great teams here and we battled through a bit of an uphill battle out of the gates. It’s a good group of guys and hats off to our staff for putting it together.”

NC State did its biggest damage in the freestyle, winning all five individual events and the three freestyle relays. With the eight golds, they became the first team to sweep freestyle since Virginia in 2002.

    Nice. Shows what a difference a coach can make.

    Give these coaches pay raises and resources. How many ACC championships have we won in the past few decades? Not many.

    Duke built their athletics by building champion programs in minor sports.

    While it’s nice to win an ACC Championship in anything, it’s especially nice to win one in a sport where we used to be dominant.

    Would love to see us dominate in CC, Swimming, Wrestling …

    first ACC swim trophy since Easterling retired. We won 24 ACC championships from 1953 to 1992, and then zippo in the next 23 years until now. Congrats to Coach Holloway and his staff (particularly since Holloway, though a State alum, graduated almost a decade after Coach Easterling and his championship tradition retired…)
