In final preparation for the 2013-14 swimming and diving season this weekend, the Tennessee squad is back in familiar territory: Wrightsville Beach, N.C.
The quiet seaside town has been the site for the UT preseason training camp of sorts the last three years. The trip was once just for the women's squad, but the entire Tennessee program makes the trip since the men's and women's teams merged in 2012.
The team arrived late Wednesday evening and had a very full day of activities Thursday.
Swimmers and divers participated in land workouts on the beach, then everyone got a chance to pick up a surfboard and catch some waves. Surfing provided a break from the norm obviously, but it also counted as a taxing workout. The team returned to the ocean for more surfing in the afternoon.
Team building exercises were also on Thursday's schedule and is a strong theme of the weekend as the team prepares for the season ahead.
Friday's schedule revolves around the season opening dual meet at UNC Wilmington at 4 p.m.
