A mechanical engineering student has been named to the 2018 Academic All-Big 12 Women’s Swimming & Diving Team.

Jessi Storer, a sophomore distance/fly swimmer, was a 2018 Academic All-Big 12 Women’s Swimming & Diving first team selection, the conference announced last month. The Lincoln, Neb.-native finished 10th in the mile swim during the finals of the Big 12 Championship last month in Austin, Texas. She notched seven points to help the Cyclones to a fourth place overall finish.

Storer is among 14 Cyclone swimmers and divers named to the first team for having a grade-point average (GPA) of 3.20 or higher. Two Cyclones were also named to the second team with GPAs between 3.00 and 3.19. The 16 Cyclone honorees was Iowa State’s highest number since 2015 when 16 Cyclones were also recognized.
