The Iowa women’s swimming and diving team dominated the weekly awards given out by the Big Ten conference after a victorious meet in Iowa City on Dec. 7. The Hawkeyes swept the weekly awards table for the first time in school history by taking all three honors— Swimmer of the Week, Diver of the Week, and Freshman of the week.

Hawkeye sophomore Becky Stoughton won the 500 free, 1,000 free, and 200 fly, which landed her the Swimmer of the Week award. Stoughton set an Iowa record in the 200 fly with a time of 1:69.58. This is the second time Stoughton has been named Big Ten’s Swimmer of the Week.

Olivia Kabacinski won her first Big Ten Freshman of the Week award by anchoring the winning 200 medley relay, winning the 50 free and 100 free with times of 23.10 and 50.46, as well as leading off a victorious 400 free relay against the Cyclones.

Joelle Christy gained her first Big Ten award as well; she was named Diver of the Week after winning both the 1- and 3-meter springboard competitions.

The Hawkeyes will return to action on Dec. 17, when they travel to Colorado Springs, Colo., to face Colorado College and Austin College.
