In aiding Oakland to their respective two-win starts, swimmers Aleksander Danielewskiand Patricia Aschan along with diver Tricia Grant were named Horizon League Athletes of the Week.
Danielewski’s time of 1:50.03 in the 200 back not only set a new record at Milwaukee’s Klotsche Natatorium, but is among the top 50 times in the NCAA early on.
