Mauricio Robles, Tori Lamp win at Georgia Tech

Auburn sweeps UT in volleyball

The Tennessee women’s swimming and diving team led after the first day of the Georgia Tech Invitational in Atlanta on Friday. The Vols are second in the men’s competition.

Senior Tori Lamp won the women’s 1-meter springboard with a score of 312.20 while sophomore Samantha Lara was third with 294.15.

Sophomore Mauricio Robles won the men’s 3-meter springboard.

The Vols won the 400-yard medley with Sean Lehane, Ross Dibblin, Sam Rairden, and Gustav Aberg finishing in a time of three minutes, 18.23 seconds.

“Overall, I was very pleased with our performance,” Tennessee diving coach Dave Parrington said in a school release. “We’re using this as a dry run for the SEC Championships. We’re on the road. We’re putting in long hours and long days at the pool purposely. I feel we’re off to a good start, and we’ll just keep moving in that direction.”

UT freshman Camryne Morris swam to a second-place finish in the women’s 500 freestyle in a career-best time of 4:49.80. In the 50 free, sophomore Faith Johnson was second in 23.05.

The Lady Vols lead a field of nine with 328 points but hold just a two-point advantage over Florida Gulf Coast.

The Vols have 419 points and trail Georgia Tech (508).

Volleyball: Senior Ellen Mullins keeps adding to her UT career digs record as she recorded 17 more in a 25-14, 25-7, 25-16 loss at Auburn (18-10, 9-7 SEC).

Mullins has 612 digs on the season and is now just 17 away from breaking the Tennessee single-season mark held by Chloe Goldman. Mullins is sixth all-time in the SEC.

Freshmen Jamie Lea, Raina Hembry, and Ashley Mariani had five kills apiece for the Lady Vols (9-21, 1-15). Junior Shealyn Kolosky also added four kills.

Lexi Dempsey led Tennessee with 16 assists.

Freshman Kayleigh Moody made her first appearance for the Lady Vols this season and recorded one dig.

Tennessee is at Alabama on Sunday.
