MILWAUKEE - Senior Kelsey George and sophomore Zac Kraai of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee swimming & diving team have been named the Horizon League Diver and Swimmer of the Week, the league office announced this afternoon.
George closes out the regular season with her fourth diving honor of the year and ninth of her career. For Kraai, the accolade is a career-first.

He also topped the field in the 1,000 freestyle, finishing in a season-best time of 9:30.78.
