Flickinger, a senior at the University of Georgia, won the Commissioner’s Trophy for high-point honors at the SECs a season ago.

The No. 1-ranked Lady Bulldogs (9-0, 4-0 SEC) have won the conference title each of the last six seasons and 12 times overall.

Flickinger boasts the nation's top collegiate times this season in the 200 freestyle and 200 butterfly. Flickinger won the 2015 400 individual medley at the SEC meet and took second in the 200 backstroke and the 200 butterfly.
