Sophomore Nolan Monahan (Stafford, Va.) was selected as the Swimmer of the Week, freshman Gillem McMillan (Knoxville, Tenn.) earned Diver of the Week accolades and classmate Daniel Moore (Riverview, Fla.) was recognized as the Rookie of the Week.
For Monahan, this is the second time this season he has earned this distinction (Jan. 10).
