Swim Vols Post Good Day at USA Swimming Grand Prix

April 2, 2004


Indianapolis -- The Tennessee swimming team was well represented Friday at the USA Swimming Grand Prix in Indianapolis when two Vols scored swims that made the cut for the Olympic Trials.

"It was a good swim for the team today," UT head coach John Trembley said. "They are swimming strong in preparation for the Olympic Trials and possibly the Olympics."

Senior Andrew Bree was the top performer for the Vols at a meet featuring some of the top talent on the planet. Bree finished fifth in the 100-meter breaststroke in 1:03.85. The time proved good enough to earn Bree a trip to the Olympic Trials.

Josh Fulton also made the Olympic Trials cut for the Vols. Fulton finished sixth in the 100-meter butterfly in 55.27. Freshman Andrew Engle, also competing in the butterfly, narrowly missed making the cut by one-tenth of a second.

Others Vols in action on Friday included freshman Brad Boswell and sophomore Tyler Gustafson, who both competed in the 200-meter freestyle. Boswell (1:53.58) and Gustafson (1:53.90) finished 18th and 19th, respectively.

The Vols continue action Saturday at the IU Natatorium.
