The University of Tennessee women's swimming and diving team recorded two individual victories on the final day of the Indiana Invitational en route to a second-place team finish on Sunday.
The Lady Vol divers, meanwhile, closed out competition on a strong note at the Minnesota Invitational as Stacy Binyon and Kylee Wells placed third and fifth, respectively, on the 10-meter platform.
Freshman Jacque Fessel recorded the initial victory of the Indiana meet for Tennessee when she touched the wall first in the 100y back. Fessel's time of 2:00.92 is an NCAA provisional-qualifying mark, which currently ranks her 12th in the NCAA and seventh in school history.
Tennessee's second victory of the day came in the 200y fly, where freshman Noelle Bassi swam a 2:00.11.
While the Lady Vol swimmers swam in Indiana, the Tennessee divers continued to show a penchant for big dives at the Minnesota Invitational. Senior Stacy Binyon placed third on the platform with a score of 394.60 and junior Kylee Wells finished fifth with a total of 348.65.
"Stacy did a fantastic job today, and I'm very pleased with her performance," UT diving coach Dave Parrington said. "Kylee was a bit off the mark but also accomplished some good things. Overall, this was a very good meet for us, and we achieved a lot by coming here."
The next competition for the Lady Vols will come as they head to Florida for winter training, during which they will race at the Key West Relay Extravaganza in Key West, Fla., on Dec. 18.
