The Tennessee men's swimming and diving teams resume competition this weekend in the Princeton Invitational. The swimming takes place at Princeton's Denunzio Pool, while the diving portion of the contest will be held at the Rutgers University Aquatic Center in nearby New Brunswick.

"I am excited to get the opportunity to take the divers up to their first three day invitational meet of the year," diving coach Dave Parrington said. "We will be facing quite a few divers from schools we seldom see other than invitationals such as the Robert Galbraith Invitational and the NCAA championships. So it will provide us with some great opportunities to dive against some good competition."

Head swim coach John Trembley shares a similar anticipation of the upcoming opponents.

"We will see a blend of Ivy League, Big East and ACC foes, some teams that we rarely see," Trembley said. "So it will be nice to compete against some fresh faces as well as some traditional foes."

The Invitational includes Princeton, Rutgers, Brown, Virginia, Pittsburg, American and Columbia in addition to the Vols, who enter with a 5-0 overall record. Tennessee's most recent victory came over 15th-ranked Virginia 134-109.

"After a long fall of preparation including some great dual meets, we are really excited about traveling to Princeton for the invitational," Trembley said. "Last time we traveled to Princeton, we had a very successful outing. The team looks good physically. We are well conditioned, injury free and well-prepared to swim some good races."
