GREENSBORO, N.C. - NC State's Braden Holloway has been named the ACC Men's Swimming & Diving Coach of the Year, the conference office announced Thursday.
"Being named ACC Coach of the year is a testament to our great staff as well as our student-athletes," said Holloway. "I'm truly honored to receive this award on behalf of NC State swimming & diving. Hats off to all of the hard work that the athletes and staff put in during the season."
Holloway's squad capped off an impressive season with a top-15 finish at the NCAA Championships, the program's highest finish since the 1978-79 campaign and the best among ACC schools.
At the NCAA Championships, eight individuals on four Wolfpack relay teams earned All-America honors. Juniors Jonathan Boffa and Barrett Miesfeld earned All-America honors in individual events as well.
The second-year head coach led the Wolfpack men's team to a 5-4-1 record during the regular season, including a 2-2-1 mark in the ACC. The squad finished fifth at the 2013 ACC Championships.
During the season, the men's team set 42 all-time top-10 marks, headlined by new school records in the 100 and 200 freestyle, 100 and 200 butterfly, 100 and 200 backstroke, 100 and 200 breaststroke, 400 individual medley, 200 and 400 medley relay, 200 and 400 freestyle, and platform diving event.
