The Big Ten picked two Iowa swimmers in its weekly honors.

Freshman Jerzey Twarowski and sophomore Emma Sougstad were named the men’s Freshman of the Week and women’s Swimmer of the Week, respectively, for their performances at Minnesota.

Twarowski won three races in Minnesota, the 200 butterfly and 100 butterfly, and he was a member of the winning 200-medley relay.

He ranks 14th in the nation in the 200 butterfly, according to USA Swimming’s time standards, and he has earned an NCAA provisional cut in the event.

Twarowski is Iowa’s first Freshman of the Week since Nick Zito on Oct. 1, 2013.

Sougstad also won three races at Minnesota, and she took third in another. She was part of the winning 200-medley relay and won the 100 and 200 breaststrokes. She took third place in the 400-free relay.

She is ranked seventh in the 100 breaststroke and 23rd in the 200 breaststroke, and she has earned NCAA provisional cuts in both events.

This is Sougstad’s first career Swimmer of the Week award.
