COLUMBIA, Mo. - Mizzou diver Loren Figueroa was named the Southeastern Conference Female Diver of the Week, the conference announced on Tuesday. Figueroa has now earned the award a league-leading three times this season.

Oklahoma City, Okla., native Figueroa swept the 1 and 3-meter diving titles in Mizzou's dual win over Drury on Jan. 25. She posted her second highest score of the season in the 3-meter with 338.25 points to win the event. In the 1-meter, she scored 296.48 points to earn top honors.
