On Friday, Tennessee held its final game-type scrimmage before this
Saturday's Orange and White game at Neyland Stadium. While much of
the spring practice has been dominated by the defense, the quarterbacks
seized the spotlight in Friday's action -- as Peyton Manning
completed 19 of 23 passes for 171 yards; Jeremy Bates completed
13-14 for 170 yards, including touchdown tosses of 30 and 14 yards; and
Shawn Snyder completed three of five passes for 51 yards, including
21-yard touchdown strike.
The No. 15 Vol netters fell to No. 8 LSU on Friday in Baton Rouge,
dropping their SEC record to 4-4 on the season. The Tigers put together a
strong showing in doubles and retained the momentum, taking four of five
singles matches to top Tennessee 5-1. The Vols were coming off a strong
showing against Kentucky at the Varsity Courts last Wednesday. Tennessee
edged out the No. 19 Wildcats 4-3. With the singles split 3-3, the doubles
point proved to be the difference, as the Vols took the crucial point by
taking two of the three doubles matches. The Vols also took on Auburn at
the Varsity Courts on Sunday. Results were not available at press time.
South Carolina visits Knoxville on April 21, as Tennessee's next opponent.
The Vols now stand at 15-6 overall, equaling their win total of last year
with two matches remaining before the SEC championships.
The registration deadline for the All Sport/Pilot 3-on-3 basketball
shootout has been extended until this afternoon. Entry fee is $80 per team,
with a portion of the proceeds to go to the Boy Scouts of America -- Great
Smoky Mountain Council and the Greater West Knoxville Sertoma Club. The
tournament will be held April 22-23 at the Windsor Square Shopping Center.
The top three teams will be invited to compete in the North American Finals
in Denver, Colo., Sept. 2-3. For more information contact the Boy Scouts of
