UCD's Donnelly, UCSB's May Honored with Weekly Swim Awards
A first timer and a veteran winner took home the Big West Athlete of the Week awards this time around as UC Davis' Danny Donnelly and UC Santa Barbara's Anne Marie May were honored with the men’s and women’s accoloades, respectively.
Donnelly, a native of Aptos, Calif., had a stellar meet against Cal State Bakersfield on the way to his first conference weekly swim award.
The junior won the 100 back in 51.13 and the 100 fly 49.95 (swimming exhibition), while also leading off UC Davis’ winning 400 medley relay.
May, who hails from Carmel, Calif., claimed her third weekly honor of the season after leading the Gaucho women against UNLV last weekend.
The junior took first place in all four of her events at UNLV including top finishes in the 50 (23.27) and 100 free (50.80). Her time in the 100 was her second best this season and best time in a dual meet this season by any Gaucho. Her splits in the 200 medley relay (22.53 - anchor) and 200 free relay (22.41 - anchor) were also the fastest in a dual meet this season.
