For the second consecutive week, Shaugnessy earns Swimmer of the Week honors as she recorded one first-place finish and three runner-up finishes at the Minnesota Toyota Grand Prix.  Her time in the 400-yard individual medley (4:21.03) met an NCAA `B' standard.  The junior took part in the 400 freestyle relay, helping the quartet to a winning time of 3:27.29.  Shaughnessy also performed well in the 200 backstroke (2:01.27) and 400 medley relay (3:47.15), touching the wall second in both.  The Rochester, Minn., native garners her second career weekly laurel.

Diver of the Week
Jacqueline Schroeder, Minnesota

Schroeder outperformed the field at the Minnesota Diving Invitational last week notching two first-place finishes and also runner-up honors.  Her first-place platform score of 279.30 just missed the Gopher school record by 0.1 points set in 2006 by Holly Jakits (279.40).  Schroeder's championship performance from the one-meter board tallied an NCAA `B' cut score of 271.75.  Off the three-meter, the Edina, Minn., native sprung for a second-place score of 300.45 qualifying her for the NCAA Zone Diving competition in March.  This is the sophomore's first career weekly award.
