Lee Haber and Meghan Mulhern were selected as Swimmers of the Week, while Noel Whitlock and Jed Henrichsen were selected as Divers of the Week.

Mulhern had a busy two days. The Tiger standout swam the 1000 Free (11:13.95) and a season-best time in the 500 Free (5:28.75) versus Centre.
She then posted wins the next day in the 200 Free (2:03.98) and the 100 Free (58.27) on the road against Transylvania.
Swimming two dual meets in two days, Haber won both the 200 Breast (2:13.16) and 200 IM (2:00.26) against Centre. After posting season-best times against the Colonels in those events, he swam a 50 Free split (23.05) leg in the 200 Free Relay.
