Tennessee has been home to many transfers in recent years. For example, all three of Tennessee’s returning fifth year senior women for this upcoming season all transferred into Tennessee sometime in their undergraduate careers.
The SEC changed its intra-conference transfer rules starting in the 2021 season. This allows for immediate eligibility when transferring within one’s own conference instead of having to sit out a season.
The Tennessee women captured the 2022 SEC Championship title. Notably, Tennessee’s weakest diving event was the platform event as they only scored 15 points in the event. They scored 23 points in the 3 meter and 25 points in the 1 meter.
