Tichy, Baxter Collect Big Ten Weekly Honors

Anastasia Tichy and Abby Baxter each earned Big Ten Swimming and Diving Weekly Awards, announced by the conference on Wednesday afternoon.

Tichy, a freshman from Salzburg, Austria, was named the Big Ten Freshman of the Week after setting a facility record in the 200 butterfly at ARC Pool this past weekend against Illinois with a time of 1:59.22. She also contributed a fourth-place finish in the 100 butterfly (56.22). 

Earlier in the season, at the Hawkeye Invite, Tichy hit a B Standard in the 200 butterfly with a time of 1:58.87.

Baxter, the Big Ten Diver of the Week, swept the diving competition against the Fighting Illini with first-place finishes on the one meter and the three meter. She logged a score of 331.65 on the three meter for a career-best and added a 296.18 on the one meter.

The Huskers return home for a two-day dual with Rutgers this Friday and Saturday. Competition will kick off at 5 p.m. (CT) Friday evening and will resume Saturday morning at 10 a.m. (CT) following senior day festivities.
