ATHENS, Ga. – Following last weekend’s split against Tennessee, the No. 12 University of Georgia swimming and diving team closes its home season Saturday morning against in-state rival Emory in the annual Senior Day meet at Gabrielsen Natatorium.

The meet opens at 11 a.m. EST and will be streamed live on SEC Network+ with live results available on GeorgiaDogs.com and to paid subscribers on the MeetMobile app. The first 100 fans in attendance at Gabrielsen will receive a Georgia swimming and diving T-shirt. Prior to the meet, 18 seniors, fifth-year seniors, and graduate students will be recognized for their contributions to the program.

In the all-time series, the Georgia men hold a 43-9 advantage with the first meeting between the schools coming in 1929. In the women’s series, Georgia is unbeaten with a 28-0 record. Saturday’s meet is the first meeting for the programs since a Georgia sweep on Feb. 2, 2019 in Athens.

Last Saturday against Tennessee, Georgia split as the Bulldog men prevailed, 169.5-129.5, while the women fell 163-135 to the Lady Vols. Sophomore Luca Urlando earned four wins, including a sweep of both butterfly events, while fellow sophomore standout Jake Magahey won the 200 and 500 freestyles, along with a second-place time in the 1,000. In the women’s meet, junior Zoie Hartman and sophomore Maxine Parker each picked up a pair of victories, while sophomore diver Meghan Wenzel earned her second win of the season on the 1-meter. In the meet, three Bulldogs: sophomore Tommy-Lee Camblong and freshmen Sam Parker and Briana Roberson each earned their first collegiate wins.

With one dual meet remaining before the SEC Championships open on Feb. 15, the Georgia men have posted 28 B-cuts and two A-cut relays, while the women have amassed 43 B-cuts in individual and relay events. Additionally, three women’s divers have already qualified for the Zone B Championships.

Led by head coach Jon Howell, Emory remains one of the nation’s top swimming and diving program, with the men ranking first and the women second in the most recent CSCAA D-III top-25 poll. After a two-year break due to COVID-19, the Eagles will enter the NCAA D-III Championships as a top contender. The Emory women have won 10 consecutive national championships, while the men have finished in the top-three at the last three meets, including a title in 2017 led by Georgia ProDawg and Olympic gold medalist Andrew Wilson.
