Repeat Winners Highlight Weekly Swim Awards
A pair of swimmers who had previously been honored with Athlete of the Week accolades claimed the awards once again this week as Cal Poly's Peter Kline and Lacy Buck took home the awards.
Kline, who claimed the Men's Athlete of the Week on October 29 and November 12, claimed the award again after an impressive showing at the USA Swimming Grand Prix. The sophomore posted times of 1:51.37 in the 200 IM, 3:55.28 in the 400 IM, 50.43 in the 100 back and a school-record showing of 1:47.00 in the 200 back.
Buck, who also took home the Women's Athlete of the Week award on November 12, also had an excellent performance at the USA Swimming Grand Prix. Competing in her home town of Long Beach, Calif., the freshman set school records in the 1000 (10:09.27) and 1650 (16:50.60), while also posting a time of 4:57.90 in the 500 free.
