Gregg Troy has the Gators men's (No. 4) and women's (No. 16) teams primed for a tough matchup against Tennessee this afternoon at 1. 

The Florida men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams will take on the Tennessee Volunteers at 1 p.m. Friday in Knoxville.

The No. 4 UF men’s team (6-1) enters the meet coming off a 183-114 win over SEC rival Auburn last Saturday.

Following a strong performance against the Tigers, senior Ben Lawless said the team will continue to work on the fundamentals in preparation for Tennessee’s No. 12 men’s team.

“Tennessee is one of the best teams we will face,” Lawless said. “They are really talented up top, but they are not as deep as we are.”

The men’s team will look to pick up its sixth straight win this season.

The No. 16 women’s squad (4-4) has a tough task ahead after losing to Auburn on Saturday by 21 points. It will face Tennessee’s No. 9 women’s team.

After UF freshman Taylor Ault’s breakout performance against Auburn — one that saw her record wins in the 500 free and 1000 free — she said the key is to keep practicing and working on her weaknesses.

“I probably need to continue to improve on my speed-work and getting out with enough speed,” she said.

Despite the UF’s loss, Ault said she was happy with the way her teammates performed against Auburn.

“We did so much better this year, and I was really proud of how far we’ve come, especially in a midseason meet,” Ault said.
