Posted February 8th, 2017


Texas swimmers Joseph Schooling and Joanna Evans were named Big 12 swimmers of the week while Grayson Campbell earned Big 12 honors as the diver of the week, the conference announced on Wednesday.

Schooling won both of his individual events and swam in two relays as the Longhorns defeated Arizona 162-121 on Jan. 27.

Campbell topped the competition in the three-meter diving event at the same meet. He finished second to UT teammate Mark Anderson in the one-meter event.


Evans was named the Big 12 co-swimmer of the week after she won the 1,000-yard freestyle against Arizona. The sophomore was named alongside freshman Jenny Nusbaum of Kansas.

Evans also had a win in the 200 individual medley against TCU in Fort Worth on Friday.

The Longhorns men and women now turn their attention to the Big 12 Championships which will be held in two weeks at the Lee and Joe Jamail Swimming Center.
