Tennessee senior Lindsay Gendron had a day to remember Saturday on the final day of the NCAA Women’s Swimming and Diving Championships in Minneapolis, Minn.

Gendron broke school records in the 100 freestyle and in 200 butterfly, helping the Lady Vols finish seventh in the team standings.

Tennessee finished in the top 10 in the NCAAs for the third straight season after finishing third last year. Georgia repeated as champions.

Gendron broke both records in the morning, qualifying for the 100 free final with a time of 47.66 seconds to break Michelle King’s previous mark. She was eighth in the final.

In the 200 fly, Gendron set a school record of 1:53.36 to qualify for the finals. It was only her third time to ever swim the race in competition.

But she wasn’t done. In the final, Gendron lowered the mark to 1:53.05 and finished third.

Bearden High School graduate Tori Lamp closed out her college diving career. Lamp posted the third-best preliminary qualifying score but missed two dives in the final in finished sixth.
