Final Stats

The No. 15 Auburn women's and swimming diving team knocked off a pair of top-15 squads while the No. 10 men split their results in a two-day, double dual meet with Wisconsin and Tennessee on Friday and Saturday at the Martin Aquatics Center.

Auburn's women downed No. 14 Tennessee, 181-172, and knocked off No. 12 Wisconsin, 205-146.

The Auburn men toppled No. 25 Wisconsin, 256-97, but lost a hard fought battle to No. 18 Tennessee, 180-173.

"Tennessee and Wisconsin gave us some real tough racing over the course of two days," Auburn head coach Brett Hawke said. "I'm really proud of how the team responded, especially today. The women continued to win the tough races and the men found a way to win the close races."

Aly Tetzloff won the 100 back in 53.58 and also led off Auburn's top 200 medley team in 25.16. The remainder of the relay team of Breanna Roman (28.90), Haley Black (24.00) and Julie Meynen (22.59) combined for a 1:40.65 to take second behind Wisconsin (1:40.12).

Roman was not finished there, touching first in the 100 breast in 1:02.60.

Alison Maillard took top honors on the 3-meter, scoring a personal-beste 345.10, her second Zone Qualifying score of the weekend. Freshman Erin Norton also picked up a Zone score, finishing third with a 281.75.

"I'm very proud of Alison's performance," diving coach Jeff Shaffer said. "She had an outstanding performance, especially this early in the season. It's really good to see her step up and compete to the level which I think she can."

 

 

Zoe Thatcher (4:20.89) and Carly Cummings (4:21.15) went 2-3 in the 400 IM

In the men's races, Auburn's top 200 medley relay team of Hugo Gonzalez (22.52), Peter Holoda (26.17), Luis Martinez (21.35) and Zach Apple (20.00) combined for a second-place finish of 1:30.03 behind Tennessee's 1:26.71.

Apple, the school record holder in the 200 free, won the event 1:38.24, just ahead of teammate Owen Upchurch (1:38.81).

Gonzalez, who won the 200 back and 200 IM on Friday, took the 400 IM(3:47.78) and 100 back (48.58) on Saturday to give him four individual wins in his first meet for Auburn.

Martinez also took the top spot in the 100 fly in 47.22.

Pete Turnham scored a Zone Qualifying score on the 1-meter, taking third with a 336.30.

"It was a really strong, consistent performance by Pete," Shaffer said. "I'm very pleased with where we are this early in the season."

Auburn closed out the meet with a win in the 400 free relay (2:55.63) behind Apple (44.13), Brody Heck (44.20), Hugo Morris (44.29) and Holoda (43.01).

Auburn's win over Tennessee in the women's meet was its first in a dual meet since the 2007-08 season and came in front of a crowd of 1,227 fans.

Auburn returns to competition in a week, playing host to Texas A&M on Saturday, Oct. 21, at 1 p.m. at the Martin Aquatics Center.
