NSU Sweeps SSC Swimmer of the Week Awards

The pair earn their second honors this season




FORT LAUDERDALE/DAVIE, Fla. – For the fourth time this season, Nova Southeastern swimmers have taken home both sides of the Swimmer of the Week laurels handed out by the Sunshine State Conference. Emma Sundstedt earns her second honor of her rookie season, while Franco Lupoli collects his second, third of his career.

In a tri-meet against William Jewel and Grand Valley State at the NSU Aquatic Center this past Tuesday, the pair both picked up two first-place finishes as well as helped their respective 400 freestyle relay teams to victories.

In the 200 yard freestyle, Sundstedt claimed the win in 1:51.59, going on to take the 500 freestyle in 5:02.64. Both of Sundstedt’s times were good enough for NCAA B-Cut standards.

Lupoli earned his award after taking first-place in the 200 freestyle on the men’s side, finishing in 1:42.03. He also earned the win in the 500 freestyle in 4:39.71.

The Sharks will return to Sunshine State Conference competition on Saturday, Jan. 13, as they travel to Lakeland, Fla. to compete in a dual meet against Florida Southern. On the men’s side, the Mocs are currently ranked 19th, while the women are receiving votes.
