It was the third DOW award for the divers. It is the second time in school history that Cougars have swept the SOW and DOW awards. Cougars Stacey Ebeling and Pakhalina won the awards in the same week last year.

Williams, who finished first in the 200-yard butterfly and 200-yard freestyle events, was on the Cougarsi first-place 400-yard medley relay team and anchored the second-place, 200-yard freestyle relay team.

Almazan won first place in both the one- and three-meter diving events for a total of 554.41 points.

The Cougars will next travel to Austin to compete in the Texas Invitational Dec. 5 before resuming the season at the Georgia Invitational Jan. 5. They close out their home schedule Jan. 17 against Louisiana State.
