The women’s swimming and diving team won its second consecutive national title, bringing to six the number of NCAA titles Georgia swimming and diving has won.

Brittany MacLean, a sophomore from Toronto, who won the 500 and 1,650 freestyle races, was chosen as the Swimmer of the Meet, which was held in Minneapolis in March. Laura Ryan, a senior from Elk River, Minn., with the two springboard crowns, was picked as the Diver of the Meet. Dan Laak was selected as the Diving Coach of the Meet.

The Lady Bulldogs also earned their fifth consecutive and 11th overall Southeastern Conference championship last month in Athens.
