uk swimming2 300LEXINGTON, Ky. (9/19/13) – The University of Kentucky Swimming and Diving team will host its annual Blue/White Intrasquad scrimmage Friday at 3 p.m. at the Lancaster Aquatics Center, first-year head coach Lars Jorgensen announced.
 
The event marks the beginning of the Jorgensen era at UK. A 1988 Olympian and standout student-athlete at the University of Tennessee, he succeeds Gary Conelly, who retired after 22 seasons. Jorgensen was named Kentucky’s head coach in May after serving as associate head coach last season.
 
Friday’s intrasquad will give fans their first look at the 2013-14 Wildcats. UK returns all four student-athletes that competed at the 2013 Men’s and Women’s NCAA Championships. Senior diver Greg Ferrucci is coming off fourth-place finishes in all three NCAA events and became the first diver to earn First-Team All-America honors in one season on the 1 meter, 3 meter and platform. Senior John Fox and juniors Christina Bechtel and Christa Cabot made their first NCAA appearance in 2013.
 
The UK men are coming off a 22nd-place national finish in 2013.
 
Fox, senior Maclin Simpson and junior Michael Christian were named captains of the UK men’s team, while Bechtel, Cabot and fellow junior Lindsay Hill were announced as captains of the women’s squad.
 
The 2013-14 campaign features dual meets with four SEC foes and two home competitions. The Wildcats host Ohio State on Oct. 11 at 5 p.m. and Cincinnati on Feb. 1 at noon. Both events will be held at the Lancaster Aquatics Center on the UK campus. The season begins with a dual meet at Georgia on Sept 25, when the Blue and White go up against the defending national champion women’s team and No. 10 men’s team.

The 2014 SEC Championships will be held Feb. 18-22 in Athens, Ga. The NCAA Women’s Championship will be in Minneapolis, Minn., March 20-23, while the men’s national championship will be March 27-30 in Austin, Texas.
