Jevon Tarantino

Jan. 8, 2004

Tennessee freshman diver Jevon Tarantino was named the SEC's Diver of the Week for the period ending Jan. 5, following his efforts at the Georgia Diving Invitational held Jan. 3-5.

Tarantino won both the one-meter and three-meter events in a meet considered by many to be a preview for the NCAA Championships. In the three-meter competition,Tarantino was 38 points behind going into the finals but managed a come-from-behind win to overtake Caesar Garcia of Auburn. The following day Tarantino held off teammate Phillip Jones to secure the one-meter title.

"The wins on both boards at Georgia against an exceptional field was a big boost for Jevon," head diving coach Dave Parrington said. "His strong performance was very deserving of the award."

Next up for the Volunteers is a road trip to Virginia to face the No. 11-ranked Cavaliers on Jan. 10.
