ATHENS, Ga. --- Georgia diver Laura Ryan and swimmer Rachel Zilinskas have earned Southeastern Conference weekly honors, according to an announcement Tuesday by the league office.

Ryan was chosen as the SEC Female Diver of the Week, while Zilinskas was picked as the SEC Female Freshman of the Week. This marks Ryan's second Diver of the Week designation.

In the Georgia Diving Invitational last Friday through Sunday, Ryan, a senior from Elk River, Minn., placed first on the 3-meter springboard with 332.40 points and came in second on 1-meter with 305.70 points. She also won the shootout portion of the 1-meter competition. Using prelims results from the invitational as part of Georgia's dual meet with North Carolina State on Saturday, Ryan finished first on 1-meter with a season-high 315.30 points and second on 3-meter with 312.15 points.

Zilinskas, a freshman from Indiana, Pa., won the 500 freestyle with a time of 4:50.80 against the Wolfpack. She also placed fourth in the 100 backstroke in 56.88 and was on the 200 medley (1:44.90) and 400 freestyle (3:30.81) relays that came in fourth.

Ryan and Zilinskas helped the Lady Bulldogs improve to 7-0 with the win over North Carolina State. The Lady Bulldogs also extended their Georgia all-sports record with their 87th consecutive victory at Gabrielsen Natatorium.

Georgia's teams will be back in action Friday at Texas A&M and Saturday at Texas.
