Eight Tennessee Volunteers swam Sunday to wrap up competition at the Bulldog Invitational Last Chance Meet in Athens, Ga.
Two Vols clocked NCAA B-Cut times and a relay team did the same, but none of those times were season bests.
Senior Carl Jones swam the 1650-yard freestyle in 15 minutes, 17.48 seconds, which was an NCAA B-Cut time but five seconds slower than he swam at the SEC Championships. Freshman Tristan Slater swam the 400 IM in 3:49.47, a second slower than he raced at the conference meet as well.
In other races, freshman Ben Scheffer finished the 200 backstroke in 1:46.64 in the prelims and finished fifth, just missing the NCAA B-cut standard by .04. Sophomore Oystein Hetland swam the 100 freestyle in 45.09.
