The University of Tennessee men's swimming and diving team won two meets
this weekend, one at home and one on the road.
The No. 8 Volunteers (2-0, 2-0 SEC) thumped Kentucky, 144-92, Saturday
afternoon at the Wildcats's Lancaster Aquatic Center in Lexington,
Evan Stewart, the one-meter world champion, set a Lancaster record with a
score of 319.43 in the one-meter competition. The Harare, Zimbabwe, native

completed a UT sweep in both diving events, finishing second.
Tennessee also extended its home-winning streak to 29 with a 127-97 win

Nineteen athletes scored for the Vols. That list was led by P.J. Wiseman,
who won two individual events and scored 18 points. Sophomore divers
Stewart and Adam Terrell scored 12 points each.
Tennessee head coach John was pleased with the meet, and pointed out
individual performances as well.
