Stern Named National Swimmer of the Week for Eighth Time
AMHERST, MA – Amherst College senior Kendra Stern (Albuquerque, NM) has been named the Counsilman-Hunsaker National Collegiate Swimmer of the Week for her performance at the 2011 NESCAC Championships this past weekend.
This is the first time of the season and eighth time in her career Stern has been named National Swimmer of the Week. At last week's conference championships she won the 100-yard freestyle (50.43), 200 free (1:47.21) and 500 free (4:48.58), also swimming in four relays that placed in the top three. For her efforts she was named NESCAC Swimmer of the Meet for the third time in her career, also grabbing Four-Year High Point Swimmer honors.
An undefeated Big Ten career in the 100 breast by Jillian Tyler (University of Minnesota) and two individual SEC titles by Mark Dylla (University of Georgia) have earned the pair the Counsilman-Hunsaker National Collegiate Swimmer of the Week Honors for Division I. Winning this week’s award for Division II were Mary O’Sullivan (Florida Southern University) and Nick Korth (UC San Diego), while Stern was joined by Mathew Spooner (Emory University) in Division III. The six recipients were selected by coaches and media relations personnel for their performances from Feb. 15-21.
