Andrew Olson brings home the first weekly award of the season to Columbus, Ohio, after claiming two wins for the Scarlet and Gray to lead Ohio State to a 120-73 victory over Cleveland State last Tuesday. The Buckeye senior captured top honors in the 200 freestyle with a time of 1:39:28 – the fastest mark by any Buckeye this season in the event. Olson then followed that performance with another winning effort in the 100 freestyle, clocking a 45.63 for the individual title. With the team win, Ohio State improves to an unblemished 4-0 on the year.
