UGA swimming head coach Jack Bauerle and sophomore swimmer Chase Kalisz will not compete in the team's first meet of the spring season Saturday afternoon.

Both Bauerle and Kalisz are withheld from competing pending the completion of an academic eligibility review according to UGA athletic director Greg McGarity.

The program's announcement comes just hours prior to the team's 2 p.m. dual meet against North Carolina State in Gabrielsen Natatorium and Bauerle's first opportunity to reach the 500-career-wins milestone.

Kalisz, a Bel Air, Md., native, holds the top national time in the 400 individual medley (3:39.03), the No. 2 spot in the 200 individual medley (1:43.32), the No. 6 spot in the 200 butterfly (1:43.55) and is the reigning NCAA champion in the 400 individual medley.
