Dresel's Record Week Leads National Honors

This was an exciting week to say the least. After setting 2 American Records, Caeleb Dressel was named this week’s Division I Swimmer of the Week.

Lilly King was named the female Division I Swimmer of the Week after destroying the competition in both breaststroke events at the Big Ten Championships. King currently leads the NCAA in the 100 breast (56.46) and sits in second place in 200 breast (2:04.68).

Franziska Weidner (Hawaii) and Logan Hotchkiss (UC-Santa Barbara) were named this week’s Mid Major Swimmers of the Week.
