Bosch wins Big Ten Swimmer of the Week, Turner adds fourth freshman honor

Michigan kept the Big Ten Men’s Swimmer of the Week award in-house for yet another week, making a month straight that a Wolverine has held the title. Dylan Bosch took home the second Swimmer of the Week award of his career and of this season – he won it on December 10th, which, coincidentally began the Michigan streak.

Bosch won four events at the Northwestern Triple Dual meet against the home Wildcats and Notre Dame. The sophomore was 48.2 in the 100 fly, 1:47.5 in the 200 fly and 1:48.9 in a 200 IM appearance for the victorious Wolverines. He was also a key leg of the winning 200 medley relay. Showing his versatility, Bosch swam three entirely different races the night before against Purdue, taking second in the 200 breast, third in the 400 IM and swimming on the winning 400 medley relay.

Another repeat winner was Minnesota’s Daryl Turner as Freshman of the Week. Turner has won freshman of the week no less than four times already in his young career, and has been Swimmer of the Week once as well. He won twice for Minnesota at the Golden Gophers’ dual meet with Hawaii in Honolulu. Turner went 44.9 to win the 100 free and was also the winner of the 100 back.

Purdue’s Jamie Bissett was named Diver of the Week for the third time in his career. The junior won three of four diving events in the Boilermakers’ double-header last weekend, sweeping the boards against Michigan State and winning 1-meter versus Michigan. He was also third on 3-meter against the Wolverines, and all four events hit Zone Diving standards.
