David Dixon (West Virginia), Morgan Bullock (West Virginia), Jordan Windle (Texas) and Izzy Ashdown (TCU) earned Big 12 swimming and diving of the week honors for week three. Dixon, Bullock and Ashdown earned their first Big 12 awards of the season, while Windle claimed his second.

Dixon notched seven wins at the West Virginia State Games, pacing the Mountaineers with four individual medals and three relay victories. The junior’s 145.41 time in the 200-yard butterfly was three seconds off the West Virginia record, a mark that Dixon set last season.

Bullock collected seven wins at the West Virginia State Games with four relay titles and three individual victories to help the Mountaineers to a first place team finish. Two of her wins came in the 200-yard butterfly and the 200-yard individual medley, events that she holds school records in.

Windle picked up his second consecutive Men’s Diver of the Week award after winning all four of his dives. He began the weekend with victories in the 3-meter and 1-meter in Texas’ dual with Texas A&M. The junior closed the weekend with two more wins in the same event in a tri-meet against Louisville and Indiana. Windle is a perfect 6-0 this season.

Ashdown broke a pair of school records en route to a first-place finish on both the 1-meter and 3-meter boards. A 323.625 score on the 1-meter broke a TCU record from 2016, while her 362.175 on the 3-meter bested a Horned Frog record that had stood since 2006.
