UA sweeps Pac-12 men's swimmer and diver of the month awards

On Wednesday it was announced that Arizona junior breaststroker Kevin Cordes and sophomore diver Rafael Quintero were selected as the Pac-12 men’s swimmer and diver of the month for January.

It’s the second time this season that the UA men have swept the monthly awards. In November Quintero’s won his first diver of the month award, and Cordes has won swimmer of the month six times, a Pac-12 record.

This is the first time that a male swimmer has gotten three-consecutive Pac-12 swimmer of the month awards. Arizona has won 11 swimmer of the month and five diver of the month titles overall.
