Freshman Andrew Engle is set the join Fulton in the 100-meter butterfly.
The fourth Tennessee Aquatics representative is sophomore Tyler Gustafson. Gustafson is qualified for the 100-meter freestyle.
Tennessee sophomore Casey Dauw is also competing at the trials but will be swimming for his home club team. Dauw will be participating in the 400-meter individual medley.
Two former Vols, Raymond Rosal (2003-04) and Paulo Machado (2001-03) have qualified
