Also earning weekly honors were Florida State’s Katrina Young and North Carolina’s Jack Nyquist.
Louisville’s Tesone, who earns his first ACC Male Swimmer of the Week honor, recorded two first place finishes in the victory over the Seminoles. Tesone won the 200 IM with an NCAA “B” cut time of 1:48.51, the only swimmer to record a time under 1:50. In addition, Tesone swam a 3:52.85 in the 400 IM race, finishing over nine seconds ahead of second place.
North Carolina’s Nyquist took home the ACC Male Diver of the Week after sweeping both diving events in the Tar Heels victory over Navy. Nyquist won the 1-meter diving event with 393.08 points, outscoring second place by 53 points. The 1-meter score was his season best and fell just a few points shy of his career best score of 398.30 points. Nyquist also won the 3-meter with a score of 378.53.
Louisville’s Worrell grabbed ACC Female Swimmer of the Week honors after recording two individual first-place finishes and taking part in three victorious Cardinal relays.
