Served. The SEC chose Kentucky swim and dive captains Tori Orcutt and Zane Rosely for the 2023-2024 Swimming and Diving Community Service Teams. The service teams highlight an athlete from each school who gives back to their community in superior service efforts.

This is Orcutt’s third consecutive selection to the team. She gained over 100 hours of community service this season and nearly 700 during her time at Kentucky. Rosely spent over 70 hours doing neighborhood cleanup and delivering welcome kits, along with many other things.
