Wednesday evening the Tennessee swimming program will host its first invitational meet in the Allan Jones Intercollegiate Aquatic Center. The Vols welcome Virginia Tech and Kentucky in a four-day, men's and women's competition.

"We'll have an opportunity to test this facility and see how fast it swims compared to some others," UT head men's swimming coach John Trembley said. "We look for a few guys to meet NCAA standards and maybe break some school records."

The meet will start Wednesday evening at 6 p.m. with the remaining days featuring preliminary rounds beginning at 10 a.m. and finals at 6 p.m.

Tennessee is 4-0 to start off the 2008-09 season and already posted a win over rival Kentucky, now 1-3, Oct. 31 (163.5-129.5). The Vols have not faced Virginia Tech since 1986. Tennessee is undefeated against the Hokies (3-1) recording nine wins from 1968-1986.
