Ware Named SEC Diver of the Week

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — For the fourth consecutive week, an LSU swimmer or diver has received recognition from the Southeastern Conference office as sophomore Rachel Ware was named SEC Female Diver of the Week on Tuesday.

Ware, a native of Richmond, Texas, won the 1-meter in the Lady Tigers’ wins over Alabama and Vanderbilt last Friday in Tuscaloosa. She took first place in the 1-meter with a score of 279.35 and finished second in the 3-meter with a tally of 283.25.

Ware currently holds the third-highest 1-meter score in the league after recording a mark of 291.30 in a dual-meet win over Delta State on Oct. 26. The All-American also ranks eighth in the conference in the 3-meter with a mark of 294.15.

Ware is the fourth straight LSU athlete to earn recognition from the SEC in as many weeks. Kevin Braud was named SEC Male Swimmer of the Week on Oct. 16. Katherine Noland was named SEC Female Swimmer of the Week on Oct. 24, and Hannes Heyl earned SEC Male Freshman Swimmer of the Week honors on Oct. 31.
