Lengel captures MWC Swimmer of the Week honor

APPLETON, Wis. -- Lawrence University's Erin Lengel was named the Midwest Conference Swimmer of the Week after winning a trio of events this past Saturday.

Lengel (Doylestown, Pa./Central Bucks East) won two individual events and swam on a winning relay team in the Vikings' 134-67 dual meet victory at Ripon College.

Lengel, who won the award after just the second meet of her collegiate career, grabbed first in the 200-yard freestyle in 2:02.17 and in the 100 butterfly in 1:02.46. She also led Lawrence's 200 medley relay team to a win in 2:00.60.

Lawrence returns to action on Friday when the Vikings travel to Beloit College for a dual meet.
