EVANSTON, Ill. - The No. 24 University of Tennessee women's swimming and diving team fell to the Northwestern Wildcats, 204.5-147.5, on Saturday.
Sophomore Lauryn McCalley led the way for Tennessee on the 3-meter springboard. McCalley won the event with a lifetime-best tally of 326.25, a score that ranks her as the third-best three-meter performer in school history and marks the fifth-highest total ever recorded by a Lady Vol.
The Moultrie native also placed second on the 1-meter springboard with a season-best score of 288.0.
UT senior Jaime Sanger meanwhile, claimed victory on the 1-meter with a season-best total of her own, 298.35. Sanger also placed third on the 3-meter with a score of 277.35.
Also having success on the boards, junior Kylee Wells (Russiaville, Ind.) grabbed second place on the three-meter (287.85) and third on the one-meter (266.03).
"I feel very pleased with our performance today," UT Diving Coach Dave Parrington said. "Our top three divers performed very consistently. Lauryn has really been working on the bigger, harder dives, which is beginning to pay off."
