Missouri junior Clark Thomas was chosen Tuesday as the SEC men’s diver of the week.

Thomas, an Olathe Northwest graduate, swept the 1- and 3-meter springboard events during a quadruple dual with Kentucky, Northwestern and Southern Illinois last week at the Mizzou Aquatic Center.

It is the fourth time Thomas, who is undefeated in three meets on the 1-meter springboard this season, has won a weekly conference in his career and the first this season.

He scored a season-best 377.55 on the 3-meter springboard and a 258.25 in six rounds in the 1-meter competition.
