A weekend that started with the hope of getting rivalry bragging rights ended in misery for the North Carolina swimming and diving team, as the Tar Heels fell in dual meets at N.C. State on Friday and at home against Duke on Saturday.
In Raleigh on Friday, the UNC men lost to the Wolfpack, 192-105, while the women suffered a 185-112 loss.
On Saturday, 19 swimmers were honored for North Carolina on senior day, but the Tar Heels once again came up short — as both the men and the women fell to the Blue Devils.
“It’s pretty easy to sum up the weekend,” head coach Rich DeSelm said. “We lost meets yesterday and today. It’s never fun to lose, and right now we need to find a way to get some wins.”
“But I’ll tell you what, the meet is over and it’s behind us. We gotta learn from it and hopefully our team will be passionate about continuing on, coming in Monday and preparing for whatever the next competition is for each of them.”
