UT Adds Olympic Gold Medalist as Volunteer Assistant

Knoxville native and new Olympic gold medalist Davis Tarwater will be working with the Tennessee swimming and diving program as a volunteer assistant coach. 

Tarwater was part of the United States' gold medal 800-meter freestyle relay team at the 2012 London Olympics. He was a three-time NCAA champion as a collegiate swimmer in Michigan, excelling in the butterfly. 

Swimming Stories: Lady Vol Preview, Volunteer Assistant

SwimSwam, one of the largest American swimming news sites, published its season preview for the Lady Vols. The women's swimming and diving squad had a breakout season in 2011-12, finishing seventh at the NCAA Championships. 

SwimSwam figures the team will continue to excel in the coming year, especially with the contributions of senior Kelsey Floyd, who reached the A finals in the 100- and 200-meter butterfly at the USA Swimming Olympic Trials.


NEW ASSISTANT
Tennessee head coach Matt Kredich has added a volunteer assistant coach to its swimming and diving coaching staff: veteran coach Bill Boomer. He has been working with the team since the end of the Olympic Trials in June. 

Boomer, an expert in stroke mechanics, coached collegiately at the University of Rochester and has also served as a guest coach for high level programs at Texas and Stanford.

From the archives, Aug. 8 was the day football veteran Bill Nowling was born in 1920. Nowling, a fullback 1940-42, from St. Petersburg, Fla., a three-year starter under Robert Neyland and John Barnhill. Nowling started for three years for the Vols at fullback, and played in the backfield for the 1940 national championship team coached by Gen. Robert Neyland. The Vols lost just four games during Nowling's three-year career at Rocky Top, and the '40 team also added an SEC title to the trophy case. Nowling and fellow Vols Rudy Klarer, Willis Tucker and Clyde Fuson lost their lives fighting for America in World War II.
