Penn State freshman Amy Modglin was named Counsilman Hunsaker National Collegiate Swimmer of the Week on Tuesday following a sensational effort at last weekend's Pittsburgh quad meet. She also earnedBig Ten Women's Swimmer of the Week laurels. Modglin won three events at Pittsburgh, including two "NCAA B" marks while also breaking more than a 30-year pool record by over a second.
The national honor is presented by CollegeSwimming.com and given to the top Division I, II and III swimmers from the previous week. The weekly accolades mark the Lions' first of the season and first since last Jan. 27 when Karie Haglund was named Big Ten Swimmer of the Week.
Modglin's two "NCAA B" times up her season total to eight. Her three first-place finishes improve her season (and career) total to 13.
