University of Minnesota swimmers Jenny Hasling and Jenny Shaughnessy have been named to the ESPN The Magazine Women's At-Large Academic All-District Teams, announced by Co-SIDA.

Hasling, who was named to the first-team all-district will advance to the Academic All-America ballot, in which the honorees will be announced in June. Shaughnessy was a second-team all-district selection.
Hasling earned All-America honors this past season as a member of the 200 free relay. During her tenure at Minnesota, Hasling was a member of the 200 free relay that broke the school record three times (2004, 2006 and 2007).

During the NCAA Championships, Shaughnessy set four school records (200 IM, 100 free, 200 free and 200 back) and earned three All-America honors. Along with her individual accomplishment, Shaughnessy led the Gophers to All-America status in the 400 and 800 free relays.
