The Iowa women’s swimming and diving team picked up its second conference award of the season on Tuesday.

Junior diver Veronica Rydze earned Big Ten Diver of the Week for her performance on Jan. 16 against Illinois.

Rydze swept the diving events in the meet, taking first in both the 1- and 3-meter diving events. Her two first-place finishes were the first wins for an Iowa diver this season.

She received a collegiate best score of 274.96 in 1-meter diving. The score also ranks as the ninth-best 1-meter score in school history.

Rydze was sidelined at the beginning of the season with a back injury, but she has been a sparkplug for the diving team since returning to the squad on Dec. 11, 2009.

She also recorded a second- and third-place finish against Iowa State in addition to her two first-places against the Fighting Illini.

The Hawkeyes will wrap up their Big Ten schedule on Saturday, when they face Northwestern in Evanston.
