South Dakota State University swimmers Jessica Ferley and Chris Schreier swept the weekly Summit League Swimming and Diving Athlete of the Week awards after successful weekends in their home pool.

Ferley, a junior from Rapid City, claimed the women's award after helping the Jackrabbits split their double dual last weekend, defeating league rival South Dakota and falling to Nebraska. She was part of the first-place 200 freestyle relay team, finishing with a time of 1:39.06, and the 200 medley team that was third overall and first against USD with a time of 1:50.42. Her relay times each were second-best league times this season. Individually, Ferley took second overall and finished first against the Coyotes in the 100 backstroke and the 500 freestyle.

Schreier, a freshman from Portage, Ind., earned his third men's honor this season after setting two school and pool records and helping the Jackrabbits defeat Summit League foe South Dakota, 183.5-110.5. He won three individual events and was a part of a winning relay team against the Coyotes. Schreier captured the 200 freestyle and 100 butterfly, the latter of which he broke his own school and pool record with a time of 50.96 seconds — the second-fastest league time of the season. Schreier also won the 400 IM, in which he set a pool record of 4:06.88 — als the second-best league time. He was also part of the first place 200 medleyelay team that set a new school record of 1:36.04, marking the fourth-best league time this season.

The Jackrabbits return to competition Dec. 3-5 at the Iowa Invitational.
