AUBURN, Ala. -- Tennessee's 13th-rated men's swimming and diving team returned to league action Friday, suffering a 131-86 loss to top-ranked Auburn at the James E. Martin Aquatics Center.

"We had a great opportunity to compete against the defending national champions," head coach John Trembley said. "They were very tough defending their home water. It was great to compete in a 25-meter course. That format will help us as we compete against Georgia (Jan. 24) and prepare us for the NCAA Championships."

Sophomore Casey Dauw had a strong day, pulling first and second place finishes in his two individual competitions. Dauw won the 400-meter freestyle with an impessive 3:55.58, then took second in the 400-meter individual medley in 4:22.70 finishing behind Auburn's defending NCAA champion George Bovell.

"It was good to come and swim in a short-course meter pool," said Dauw. "We'll do it again against Georgia. These meets are good stepping stones in preparation for the NCAA meet."

Next up for the Vols is a trip to No. 6-ranked Georgia Jan. 24.
