SWIM CENTRAL: Georgia Tech Invitational



Nov. 21, 2013



GEORGIA TECH INVITATIONAL
Nov. 22-24, 2013
Campus Recreation Center | Atlanta, Ga.
THE THREE-DAY MEET
The Tennessee swimming and diving team is back in action this weekend for the Georgia Tech Invitational, a three-day meet running Friday through Sunday that serves as the finale of the fall collegiate season.

After a period of intense training in their home waters, the Georgia Tech meet provides the first competition for the UT men's and women's squads since the double dual meet at Indiana against the Hoosiers and SEC foe Kentucky on Nov. 1. The Tennessee women are currently ranked ninth nationally with a 5-0 record. The men are No. 22 with a 3-2 record.

With action starting Friday morning, here are a few quick notes:

THREE-DAY SCHEDULE: In several ways, the Georgia Tech Invitational serves as early preparation for the championship season ahead. The scheduling is similar to the SEC and NCAA meets. Preliminary races and diving competitions will take place in the morning, followed by the championship rounds in the evening. Tennessee has only competed in dual meets so far this year, so this weekend also serves as the first multi-day event for the team.

A FEW MORE RACES: Because of the three-day format, Tennessee will compete in five championship events for the first time this season. These events are usually not included in most dual meets because of time but are part of the SEC and NCAA meet schedule:
  • 1650 freestyle (instead of the 1000 freestyle)
  • 400 individual medley
  • 200 free relay
  • 400 medley relay
  • 800 free relay
  • RETURN TO THE PLATFORM: The UT divers will compete of platform for the first time this season. Notably, it will be senior Tori Lamp's first meet on the platform since the FINA World Championships in August, where she placed 10th.
