Olympians Ledecky, Pieroni Earn National Nods

This week's CollegeSwimming National Swimmer-of-the-Week Awards go to two familiar faces. Blake Pieroni led the way for Indiana as he swept the 100 free and 200 free in Indiana's double dual meet against Texas and Florida to help Indiana come out on top over both teams. On the women's side, Katie Ledecky captured the award after her outstanding performance at the USA College Challenge. Ledecky posted top times in the 200, 500, and 1,000 yard freestyles. 

The Division I Mid-Major Awards go to Zarena Brown and Brad Gonzales. Brown helped lead Houston to a dominating win over North Texas by putting up the top time of the day in the 100 free. Gonzales swept the distance events at UNLV's season opener.

Drury's Bailee Nunn and Missouris S&T's Tim Samuelsen were selected for the Division II awards. A pair of Denison swimmers were selected for the Division III awards. Katherine Kustritz posted times in both breaststroke events that put her at the top of the Division III charts. Matt Hedman swept the 500 and 1,000 freestyle's putting up times that put him second in Divison III in both events.

NAIA Swimmer-of-the-Week Awards go to Julie Henninger (SCAD) and Erwin Ortiz Torres (Mars Hill). Iowa Central's Jana Burner and Lasse Jorgensen took the NJCAA Awards. 

Also, listed below are CollegeSwimming's Conference Swimmer-of-the-Week winners that were selected from results submitted by Midnight EST on Monday, October 23rd.
