@ByLineHead: COMPILED FROM SUBMISSIONS
Tennessee athletics have a busy weekend in store, with at least
eight teams in action across the south. Here is a partial schedule of
what's in store:
The men's and women's tennis teams spring into action, the men at the
SEC Indoor Championships in Jackson, Miss., and the women in Blacksburg,
Va., at the Virginia Tech Indoor Tournament. The 13th-ranked women will
face Princeton, No. 17 South Carolina and No. 44 Virginia Tech.
Friday and Saturday,
Johnson City -- The women's track team is set to compete at the USAir
Invitational. The meet will be held at East Tennessee State University, and
is an unscored meet.
Saturday, 9 a.m.,
Alumni Memorial Gym -- The men's volleyball club kicks off their spring
campaign in the 49th annual Smoky Mountain Invitational. The tournament
begins at 9 a.m., with the semifinals set to start at 4 p.m.
According to Jeremy Harvey, the team's public relations man, the tournament
will include squads from such schools as Vanderbilt, Georgia, Kentucky and
Texas-Arlington. Admission is free.
Saturday, 12 p.m.,
Gainesville, Fla. -- Both the men's and women's swimming and diving
teams venture into the Sunshine State to do battle with Florida. The women
last competed Jan. 11, defeating Northwestern. The men are on a roll, fresh
off dual-meet wins at Texas A&M and TCU, and a first-place finish in the
Dallas Morning News Classic over the top six finishers in last
year's NCAA Championships.
Florida's women have been ranked in the top 10 all year, while the Florida
men are currently ranked No. 15.
Saturday, 7 p.m.,
Thompson-Boling Arena -- The Tennessee men's basketball team again
comes home following a road loss, this time to face SEC-East foe Florida.
Tennessee has lost all six of its road contests this year, but has won each
home game immediately following those six losses. Florida, under new coach
Billy Donovan and his up-tempo style, has struggled, especially on the
Sunday, 7 p.m.,
Tuscaloosa, Ala. -- Pat Summitt and her Lady Vols hit the road again,
this time to face Alabama. Tennessee is coming off their first-ever loss to
Florida, a loss which snapped a modest three-game winning streak.
