Senior Ricky Henahan earned SEC Swimmer of the Week honors for his performance in the backstroke and relays against Kentucky and Indiana to start the season.
Henahan won the 100-yard backstroke in 48.33 seconds, currently the fastest time in the SEC this season and an NCAA B-cut pace. He finished third in the 200 back in 1:51.33.
The senior from Rochester, N.Y., was also part of the Vols' winning 200 medley relay and 400 free relay teams. The 200 medley relay team of Oystein Hetland, Henahan, Jake Epperson and Ed Walsh turned in an NCAA B-cut time of 1:29.34.
Tennessee (1-1) hits the road for its first away meet of the season Thursday as the Vols face Louisville in a dual match at 2 p.m.
Henahan was a success in the Vols' last trip to Louisville as a freshman in 2009. He set the pool record in the 100 back (48.06) and finished second in the 200 back as well.
