Trio of Vols Secure Olympic Trial Standards

By Todd Mounce



KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – Tennessee Vol swimmers Brad Craig, Samuel Rairden and Ed Walsh each recently recorded Olympic Trial cuts at the 2011 Long Course Southeastern Championships at the Allan Jones Intercollegiate Aquatic Center over the weekend.


Craig, who exhausted his eligibility this past season, earned qualifying standards in both the 100 and 200 breast events. The two-time SEC Champion in the 200y breast won both of the events.


Walsh, a rising junior, won the 50 free event and claimed runner-up in the 100 free. The London, England, native will have two chances to qualify for the Olympics at Britain’s 2012 Olympic Trials over March 3-10 at Olympic Aquatics Centre in east London or at another meet that has not been announced yet.


Rairden also notched a qualifying time in the 100 free along with Walsh. The rising sophomore qualified for the 2011 NCAA Championships in both back events and swam on relays.


Also competing at the meet for Tennessee Aquatics were Paschall Davis, Jake Epperson, Clint Johnson, Carl Jones, Ryan Harrison, Ricky Henahan, Mattias Kahlin, Derek Paul, Sam Peterson, Anders Storvik and Troy Tillman.
