The conference office announced on Tuesday the 10th weekly men's swimming and diving honors. Michigan State's Cameron Bartlett and Ivan Zalessov were tabbed Swimmer and Diver of the Week, respectively.
Men's Swimmer of the Week
Junior Cameron Bartlett garners his first weekly swimming laurel after earning three first-place finishes to lead the Spartans to a 181-107 victory over Ball State in East Lansing, Mich., on Saturday afternoon. Bartlett opened the meet by swimming the second leg of the 200-yard medley relay in which the team posted a winning time of 1:33.77. The New Paltz, N.Y., native later turned in a 57.84 in the 100-yard breaststroke, which was good for first place. He completed the breaststroke sweep when he posted a time of 2:07.84 in the 200-yard breaststroke, topping the next closest swimmer by 5.09 seconds.
