Jess Reinhardt was named CCSA Women's Swimmer of the Week, as announced on Wednesday.

Liberty sophomore Jess Reinhardt has been named the CCSA Women's Swimmer of the Week for the second time this season, after an undefeated showing at the Davidson Duals.

Reinhardt, a native of Gatton, Queensland, Australia, was also named Swimmer of the Week on Nov. 13. The sophomore is one of three Lady Flames to earn Swimmer of the Week honors this season. She joins Emilie Kaufman (Oct. 16) and Meghan Babcock (Oct. 30) as Liberty's Swimmer of the Week honorees in 2013-14.

This past weekend, she helped the Lady Flames go 3-0 at the Davidson Duals. Reinhardt took first place in both the 100 fly (55.12) and 200 fly (2:02.84), giving her eight individual event victories this season. She swam the third leg in 24.63 as Liberty won the 200 medley relay in a pool record time of 1:43.97. Reinhardt later earned victory in the 400 medley relay (55.06 butterfly split, 3:51.80 team time) and 200 free relay (24.51, 1:36.42).

For the season, Reinhardt's conference-best 100 fly time of 54.22 is an NCAA B cut, while she also leads the CCSA in the 200 fly, at 2:01.58.

The Lady Flames will next compete in the 2014 CCSA Swimming & Diving Championships, held at Tennessee's Allan Jones Intercollegiate Aquatic Center in Knoxville, Tenn., from Feb. 19-22.
