South Florida Aquatic Club’s Tiffany Oliver made her last dual meet of her college career a memorable one.
The Florida State senior captain won two individual events and led the Seminoles win their 15th consecutive meet over the University of Miami, 174-113, Friday at the Bobby E. Leach Center in Tallahassee.
“It was a little rough but a win is a win,” said FSU coach Frankie Bradley. “We have some things we need to work on. They have got to hit some gears that they struggled with today but we’ll work on it. We’re ready to shift our focus to the ACC Championships.”
Oliver, preparing for the big post-season meets, won the 200-yard freestyle in 1:51.49 and 50-yard freestyle in 23.34.
Oliver also anchored the winning 200-yard medley relay (1:43.75).
It was FSU’s last dual meet of the 2013-14 season. FSU’s women’s team improved to 7-2 under first-year coach Bradley and UM dropped to 0-7.
FSU leads UM 26-11 in their all-time series. It was also the Seminoles 16h straight Atlantic Coast Conference dual meet victory.
The Seminoles will now resume training for the Feb. 19-22 ACC Women’s Swimming and Diving Championships in Greensboro, N.C. The Women’s NCAA Championships are March 20-22 in Minneapolis.
FSU won 12 out of 16 events. Among other individual winners were:
Madison Jacobi, 1,000-yard freestyle, 9:52.82, 200-yard backstroke, 2:05.02, 500-yard freestyle, 4:53.99.
Chelsea Britt, 200-yard butterfly, 2:03.27.
Sami Pochowski, 200-yard breaststroke, 2:14.23.
Diver Katrina Young won the 3-meter springboard title with a career-high 343.35 points.
