Michigan Sweeps Weekly Swimming and Diving Honors

Jan. 5, 2010

The conference office announced on Tuesday the 12th weekly women’s swimming and diving awards for meets from Dec. 29 through Jan. 4. Michigan took both awards back to Ann Arbor as senior Margaret Kelly picked up the swimming laurel and sophomore Amanda Lohman earned the nod as diver of the week.

Women’s Swimmer of the Week:
Margaret Kelly, Michigan
Sr. - Ann Arbor, Mich. – Pioneer

Senior Margaret Kelly set two meet records in the 100-meter fly and the 200-meter individual medley as No. 16 Michigan opened the New Year with a dominating win at Copa Coqui on Saturday in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The Ann Arbor, Mich., native owned the meet's previous high in the 200 IM but eclipsed the time by over three seconds. The 100 Fly mark, held previously by Syracuse’s Elyse McDonough (2003), stood for seven years before Kelly shattered it. Kelly also swam a leg on the 200-meter Medley Relay team, to earn her third top finish of the day. For her efforts, Kelly was named the meet's Most Valuable Women's Swimmer. This is the second weekly swimming award for Kelly this season.

Sophomore Amanda Lohman aided the Wolverines to a convincing team win at Copa Coqui as U-M’s top diver. The Pittsburgh, Pa., native took home top honors on the three-meter board with a score of 305.70 to go along with a runner-up finish in the one-meter competition (276.53). On the day, Lohman picked up two NCAA qualifying marks. This marks the third weekly honor for Lohman’s career and the third by a Wolverine diver this season.
