ADA — Ohio Northern junior Nolan Huey (Fort Collins, Colo./Fossil Ridge) has been tabbed the Ohio Athletic Conference Swimmer of the Week for the fourth time in his career, the league office announced Monday afternoon.
The Fort Collins, Colorado native recorded four event titles and guided the Polar Bears to a 155-144 victory over conference foe Mount Union inside Hammond Natatorium on Saturday afternoon. The junior swimmer took home three individual event crowns in the 100 back (54.32), 200 back (1:58.32), and 200 individual medley (1:58.53) events and teamed up with seniors Anthony Ferrell and Justin Chapman and sophomore Zach Ayres to capture the 200 medley relay in 1:38.18.
On Friday afternoon, Huey notched two top-five finishes to pace the Orange and Black in a dual meet against No. 2-ranked Kenyon. Individually, he would end third in the 100 back event with a 1:57.03 clocking before helping the 200 medley relay squad to a fourth-place effort.
With the announcement, Huey garners his first OAC Swimmer of the Week award this season after receiving two kudos as a sophomore and one accolade during his freshman campaign.
The Polar Bears (3-2 overall, 2-1 OAC) will return home this Friday evening when they host Ohio Athletic Conference foe Baldwin Wallace for the annual Golden Kickboard Meet. Events are slated to begin at 7 p.m. inside the ONU Sports Center Natatorium in Ada.
