Also, Sam Heinritz in the one-meter diving, the 400-yard medley relay, and free-relay squads.
The men had several winners as well. They were: Adam Kolb in the 1000 and 100 freestyle, Nick Heuer in the 50 freestyle and the 200 breaststroke, Chris Sarasin in the 500 freestyle and the 200 individual medley, and the 400 freestyle relay.
The week before, the Vikings were in Oshkosh to take on UW-Oshkosh and Carthage in duel duels. The men and women both split, defeating UW-Oshkosh, but losing to Carthage. From their performances in that meet, Kolb and Heinritz were named MWC swimmers of the week.
This weekend, the Vikes women will take on St. Norbert tonight and the men are at the College of St. Catherine invitational tomorrow.
