Feb. 13, 2017

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- The SEC Swimming and Diving Championships start Tuesday at the Allan Jones Intercollegiate Aquatic Center.

Tennessee is hosting the conference meet for the 10th time in program history and the first time since 2012. The five-day meet concludes Saturday with the crowning of the men's and women's team champions.

Forty-two individual titles are up for grabs, including six on Tuesday.

10 a.m. - Swimming Time Trials
11 a.m. - Diving Preliminaries - Men's 1-Meter
2 p.m. - Diving Preliminaries - Women's 3-Meter
5:30 p.m. - Finals - Men's 1-Meter, 200 Medley Relay, Women's 3-Meter, 800 Free Relay

Junior Liam Stone, defending NCAA 1-meter springboard champion, starts off the meet for Tennessee in the diving well. He enters the meet with the highest scores in the league this year on 1-meter (418.80) and 3-meter (440.18).

On the women's side, sophomore Rachel Rubadue was a bronze medalist in the 3-meter competition last season on her way to earned SEC Freshman Diver of the Year honors.

The relays have historically been a big source of points for the Vols on the conference and national scale. Last year, the Vols won the women's 200-yard medley relay and have two returning members of that team: senior Kira Toussaint and sophomore Madeline Banic. In total, Tennessee won three of five women's relays last year en route to finishing second. The UT men are just two years removed from a title in 200 medley relay.
