The Vols collected six All-America honors as the second day of the NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships concluded Friday in Minneapolis, Minn.

UT got off to a good start with the 200 medley relay. Ricky Henahan, Brad Craig, Michael DeRocco and Ed Walsh swam to All-America honors finishing eighth in one minute 25.88 seconds.

The 100 back featured a pair of Vols. Henahan finished 13th with a mark of 47.26 seconds. Freshman Samuel Rairden had a stellar performance to take 14th in 47.39 seconds.

Craig swam to 10th in the 100 breast, his second-consecutive honorable mention All-America in the event, with a career-best time of 52.88 seconds.

In the 200 freestyle, Ryan Harrison notched an honorable mention All-America honor with a 10th-place finish. The Londonderry, Northern Ireland, native swam a time of one minute 34.63 seconds.

DeRocco came up just shy of making the finals in the 100 fly, finishing 17th in 46.60 seconds, just .05 seconds off his career-best school-record mark.

The Vols wrapped up day one with a 12th place finish in the 800 free relay. Rairden, Harrison, Anders Storvik and Christy earned honorable mention All-America status with a six minute 24.91-second time.

Action continues Saturday with the mile free, 200 back, 100 free, 200 breast, 200 fly, platform diving and 400 free relay. Live statistics as well as live streaming video can be found on www.UTsports.com.
