For Dominick Glavich, not everything has gone according to plan.
Moving to France as a child? Unexpected. Failing to qualify for the 2012 NCAA tournament as a true freshman? Again, unforeseen. Medically redshirting sophomore year with a back injury? Certainly not a part of the plan.
But an integral part of the men’s swim team, Glavich has been forced to roll with the punches his entire life. This season though, his first time swimming competitively in more than a year, the Cary native has proven not only his flexibility, but also his consistency.
This weekend, in his first home meet this season, Glavich led No. 17 North Carolina to a 186-161 win against No. 13 and future ACC foe Louisville. Even after notching three individual victories in the 200-yard individual medley, the 200-yard butterfly and the 100-yard butterfly, Glavich remained focus on the team and acknowledging the group effort.
“I feel like the training that we have been doing as a team got me here, and as a whole team, we swam really well,” Glavich said. “I’m happy with winning, but overall I’m happy with the guys team winning — we needed that.”
