MEN'S SWIMMING & DIVING ATHLETE OF THE WEEK
UIC, Junior, Arlington Heights, Ill.
LeRoy Stevens of UIC has been selected the Horizon League Men's Swimming and Diving Athlete of the Week for Oct. 26.
As UIC opened a new season, it was the same old story in regard to Stevens' contribution to the team. The third-year freestyle standout won the 50-yard freestyle and the 100-yard freestyle in convincing fashion against Eastern Illinois, swimming a 21.47 in the 50 and a 47.12 in the 100, beating the next closest finisher by over a second in both races. The Arlington Heights, Ill., native also shined in relays leading off relays over the weekend, swimming a 21.41 50 free split in beginning the men's 200-yard free relay on Saturday, while leading off the 800-yard freestyle with a team-best 200 split of 1:47.15 at the Northwestern Relays, helping the UIC men take second place at the event.

WOMEN'S OTHER TOP PERFORMERS - OCT. 26

It was a fantastic weekend for UIC freshmen at the pool, but it was Dougherty who sped out of the gates in taking the 50-yard freestyle and the 100-yard free events against Eastern Illinois on Saturday. Dougherty took the 100 freestyle by nearly two seconds, covering the distance in an even 55 ticks, while outracing teammate Kelly Hyatt in the final moments of the 50 free to win in 25.09. Dougherty was also clutch in relay action, finishing off a fine 1:41.43 performance by the Flames in the 200-yard free relay with the fastest split of the squad, jetting to a 24.40.
UW-Green Bay, Freshman, Milwaukee, Wis.
