The Tennessee swimming and diving team has been in the news quite a bit over the last few days, for stories of survival and recovery to national team predictions.
Former Tennessee swimmer Nicole Gross and her husband (another UT swimming alum) Michael, were both injured in the Boston Marathon bombing at the finish line earlier this year. Both returned to Knoxville and the Allan Jones Intercollegiate Aquatic Center recently to meet with the team. Nicole Gross' quest for recovery is documented in this USA Today feature.
SwimSwam, an international swimming news organization, has been rolling through in-depth season previews of the top college programs. The women's squad took third place last year at the NCAA Championships for the first time. This season, SwimSwam again predicts a top-five finish at NCAAs.
