The Vols' Last Event: The Vols are gearing up for a more energetic performance across the board following a disappointing 166.5-133.5 loss to Virginia Tech on the road two weeks ago. Tristan Slater picked up two individual victories again, this time in the 200 breaststroke and 200 individual medley. Freshman Sean Lehane has emerged as one of Tennessee's most dependable swimmers, winning the 200 backstroke and taking second in the 100. Freshman Gustav Aberg Ledjstrom won his first career collegiate race in the 200 freestyle. Brent Sterling was second in both diving events.

Meet the Seniors: The Vols have only three seniors on their large roster this season: swimmer Ed Walsh and divers Brent Sterling and Jordan Mauney.

Georgia's Last Event: Georgia lost to Texas at home earlier this month, 132-109. Chase Kalisz, a mid-year addition, was named SEC Freshman of the Week for the second time and has yet to lose a race. He won three events: the 200 fly, 200 breast and 400 individual medley.

In the Rankings: The Vols are currently unranked. Georgia is No. 12 in the Jan. 22 CSCAA national rankings.

Previewing the Women's Competition
Tennessee: 6-0 (1-0 SEC)
Georgia: 8-0 (4-0 SEC)

The Lady Vols' Last Event: The 10th-ranked Lady Vols finished first in 15 of 16 events en route to a 186-108 victory over the Hokies on Jan. 12. Lindsay Gendron finished first in three events for the fourth time this season, setting a pool record in the 1000 freestyle. Kelsey Floyd clocked a NCAA B-cut time in the 200 freestyle. Molly Hannis stayed perfect in the win column in the 100 and 200 breaststroke. Again, Tennessee swept the diving competitions with Tori Lamp winning the 3 meter and Jodie McGroarty taking the 1 meter.

Meet the Seniors: Lady Vol seniors who will be honored include Kelsey Floyd, Brooke Watson, Caroline Simmons and Jodie McGroarty. Sloane Pitman, who swam for the Lady Vols three years and has broadcasted most of the meets this year, will also be recognized.

Georgia's Last Event: Georgia defeated then-No. 5 Texas 143-100. Georgia won eight individual events, including 1-2-3 finishes in the 500 freestyle and 400 individual medley. It was the Lady Bulldogs' 82nd consecutive win at home.

In the Rankings: Saturday's matchup should be a good one. The Lady Vols are No. 11 and Lady Bulldogs No. 2 in the Jan. 16 poll.
