ATHENS, Ga. --- Georgia's Ann-Perry Blank has been chosen as the Southeastern Conference Female Diver of the Week, according to an announcement Tuesday by the league office.
Blank, a senior from Moultrie, Ga., won the 1-meter springboard in record-setting fashion in the No. 2 Lady Bulldogs' win over Alabama on Saturday. She registered 327.98 points to break Georgia's record for a dual meet/invitational and to eclipse the Gabrielsen Natatorium mark. The previous standards of 327.75 were set in 2011 by Georgia's Hannah Moore.
Blank also came in second on 3-meter with 334.28 points against the Crimson Tide. She has qualified for the Zone Championships on all three boards this year.
Blank helped the Lady Bulldogs finish the regular season undefeated at 10-0-1 and extend their Georgia all-sports home win streak to 89 straight.
Georgia will return to action Feb. 18-22 as the host school for the SEC Championships. The Lady Bulldogs have won four straight conference team titles.
