Vols Notch Pair of Top-Five Finishers at Swimming Grand Prix

April 3, 2004

INDIANAPOLIS -- The Tennessee swimming team notched a pair of top-five performances Saturday at the USA Swimming Grand Prix in Indianapolis from senior Andrew Bree and freshman Brad Boswell while adding three more Olympic Trials spots to the two the team scored Friday.

"This was a spectacular night for us, which was capped off by Bree's win over a star-studded field," UT head coach John Trembley said. "Our guys will now turn their attention toward performing at the Olympic Trials."

Bree was the top performer for the Vols for the second day in a row while adding another event to his Olympic Trial list. Bree finished first in a big-name 200-meter breaststroke field in 2:16.62. The 200-meter breaststroke field included former NCAA champion and world record holder Ed Moses. Bree earned a spot at the trials in the 100-meter breaststroke on Friday.

Boswell finished fifth in the 400-meter freestyle in 4:01.48. The time was good enough to reserve a spot at the Olympic Trials.

Junior Josh Fulton, who already made the Olympic Trials cut in the 100-meter butterfly, earned another spot at the trials in the 100-meter backstroke. Fulton finished 11th overall in 57.73. Fellow backstroker Andrew Engle finished 23rd in 1:00.21, respectively.

Sophomore Tyler Gustafson narrowly missed making the evening finals in the 50-meter freestyle. Gustafson finished 28th in 24.08 in the morning session.

The Vols close out action Sunday at the IU Natatorium.
