Wisconsin and Minnesota Nab Weekly Awards

Nov. 10, 2009

The conference office announced on Tuesday the fifth weekly women’s swimming and diving award winners of the season for meets through Nov. 2-9.  Wisconsin’ Maggie Meyer garners her third swimming accolade of the season and Minnesota’s Kelci Bryant collects her second-consecutive weekly diving honor. 

Women’s Swimmer of the Week:
Maggie Meyer, Wisconsin
Jr. - North Oaks, Minn. - White Bear Lake

Wisconsin’s Maggie Meyer collects her third weekly award of the season after sweeping the 100- and 200-yard backstroke against Arizona and UNLV on Friday. The junior recorded her fifth NCAA cut of the season in the 100 back with her winning time of 54.41 and then posted a 1:59.50 to claim the 200 back -- her first time all season to not meet NCAA consideration in the event. She also helped the Badgers score a win in the 200 free relay, splitting an outstanding 22.95 on the race's second leg to contribute to UW's winning time of 1:34.01. Meyer also helped UW to a second-place finish in the 200 medley relay in 1:42.21. Meyer remains unbeaten in individual events on the season and has now earned the last four weekly swimming honors for the Badgers.
