Men's Swimmer of the Week Nominee

Name: Valtteri Halonen
Year: Sophomore
Hometown: Kouvola, Finland
High School: Kuusankosken Lukio

Nominee's Finish(es)/Time(s): 200 Medlay Relay, 1st, 1:32.94; 100 Backstroke, 1st, 50.78; 200 Backstroke, 1st, 1:50.74; 200 Free Relay, 3rd, 1:25.00

Notes (personal best, new school record, etc.): Halonen posted his second consecutive meet with at least three wins as he won both Backstroke events and swam the leadoff leg of the winning 200 Medley Relay.  His time in the 100 is second fastest in the CAA this season as is his mark in the 200 Backstroke.
