Despite, the recent academic scandal, Florida State University has one of the most complete and competitive athletic programs in the nation. The latest teams to make a splash with success are the FSU swimming and diving teams.

"Team's been doing great, some of our best guys red-shirting, which gives us some adversity, but we've had some youngsters and some other team members step up, our divers are doing great, so we're getting some help from everywhere," says head coach Neil Harper.

"Well first of all, this is a massive difference for me, because I'm out in America for the first time... I was so shocked at how close the team was, and how quickly they accepted us," adds freshman Lowri Tynan.

Men's team is really coming along, I've got two juniors in Fan Freeble and Scott Derner who are really starting to come around, they've been with me for two years, and everything is starting to pay off now... It's really nice to see it happen," comments diving coach Patrick Jeffrey.

Fresh off a sweep, the Seminoles hope to build off a foundation that won two ACC champions in the past two seasons. Next in sight, a trip to South Carolina and then Clemson. The Noles expect to continue their dive for success.
