GREENSBORO, North Carolina, March 1. MARK Weber and Paul Murray took the top two spots in the 50 freestyle Thursday night at the Atlantic Coast Conference championships, though both were not 100 percent happy with their swims. Swimming World correspondent David Rieder talked to the two after the race to dissect what their swims meant to helping Florida State move up in the rankings.
Though Weber was happy with finally winning the ACC title in the event after falling short in his first three years as a Seminole, he knows “there is more in the bag,” which he'll need to place high at the NCAA championships. For Murray, a goggle malfunction kept him from performing at his best.
Weber says the 200 free relay victory gives the team confidence for the NCAAs, where it will be “all or bust” for the Seminoles in Indianapolis.
