South Dakota State swept the Summit League weekly swimming and diving awards, with Erin Eagen earning the women's award and Chris Schreier honored again on the men's side.

Eagen, a sophomore from Forest Lake, Minn., marked her return to her home state with a pair of impressive performances in the diving events at the Minnesota Challenge Feb. 4-5 in Minneapolis. Eagen broke her own school record on the 3-meter board with a six-dive total of 265.80 to place fourth out of 34 competitors. She also recorded a fifth-place finish in the 1-meter competition, totaling 250.85 points — only 2.5 points shy of the SDSU record. Eagen's mark in the 3-meter competition is the fourth-best in The Summit League this season.

A native of Portage, Ind., Schreier earned his third weekly award of his freshman season as he continued his assault on the Jackrabbit record book. Schreier set a pair of school records in the two-day meet, lowering his own standard in the 200-yard butterfly with a time of 1 minute, 51.47 seconds en route to a runner-up finish. Schreier also broke a six-year-old record in the 400 individual medley, placing third overall in a time of 4:04.99. Both times are the second fastest in the league this season.

The Jackrabbits return to competition Feb. 17-19 at the Summit League Championships in Indianapolis.
