Robles, Lamp Highlight Day 1 at GT



Nov. 22, 2013

Results


ATLANTA -- Divers Mauricio Robles and Tori Lamp swept the springboard competitions Friday to open the three-day Georgia Tech Invitational.

In the team scoring, the UT women lead the nine teams in the field with 328 points, two ahead of Florida Gulf Coast. Tennessee's men are second of three teams with 419 points, behind Georgia Tech's leading 508 point.

Tennessee scored three event victories on Friday. In addition to the divers' performances on the springboards, Tennessee's men closed out the first day of competition with a relay win. The team of Sean Lehane, Ross Dibblin, Sam Rairden and Gustav Aberg Ledjstrom beat out the competition in the 400-yard medley relay in a time of 3 minutes, 18.23 seconds.

All five of Tennessee's divers either recorded career or season bests to start the meet.

Robles won the men's 3-meter springboard with a score of 386.30, after posting a total of 403.80 in the preliminary rounds. Lamp scored 312.20 to win the 1-meter board, and sophomore Samantha Lera followed in third (294.15).

"Overall, I was very pleased with our performance," Tennessee diving coach Dave Parrington said. "We're using this as a dry run for the SEC Championships. We're on the road. We're putting in long hours and long days at the pool purposely. I feel we're off to a good start, and we'll just keep moving in that direction."

The evening session started with the 200 freestyle relay, with the Tennessee men finishing second in 1:20.80.

The first individual race of the evening was the 500 freestyle. Bryce BeVier, David Heron and Ryan Signorin took 8th through 10th in the finals, with BeVier leading the way with 4:36.84.

Sean Lehane and Tristan Slater led the way in the 200 IM for Tennessee. Lehane, UT's backstroke leader, finished third in 1:52.46, and Slater was fourth in 1:53.66.

Gustav Aberg Ledjstrom clocked a 500 freestyle prelim time of 4:30.05 in the morning but concentrated on the sprints in the evening finals.

Luke Percy was fifth (20.48), followed closely by Troy Tillman in sixth (20.61) and Oystein Hetland in seventh (20.73).

The Vols wrapped up the evening session with a victory in the 400 medley relay, winning it in 3:18.23. It was the first time this season that Tennessee had competed in either relay this season.
