Michigan and Northwestern Claim Weekly Laurels

Nov. 20, 2007

Swimmer of the Week
Tyler Clary, Michigan
Fr., Riverside, Calif./Poly
Clary individually provided first- and third-place finishes while also partaking on two winning relays in team victories over No. 19 Northwestern and Wisconsin last weekend.  Clary's first-place time in the 400-yard individual medley met the NCAA `B' cut time as he touched the wall at 3:52.29.  In the 400 and 800 freestyle relays, the freshman aided the Wolverines in to posting times of 2:58.17 and 6:37.82, respectively.  The quartet's time in the 400 relay hit the NCAA `B' standard. Clary picks up his first career weekly honor.

Diver of the Week
Alex Kiaie, Northwestern
Jr., Milwaukee, Wis./Nicolet
Kiaie racked up two first-place finishes last weekend, out-diving competition from No. 4 Michigan and Wisconsin.  The Wildcat junior won from the one- and three-meter boards by a combined 35-point margin of victory.  His showing from three meter proved to be a career-best, posting a score of 342.50.  Kiaie nearly duplicated this feat off the one-meter board with a score of 322.65, just 4.2 points from a career-best.  The Milwaukee native earns his first career weekly laurel.
