WILMINGTON, North Carolina – UNCW welcomes ACC member Virginia Tech to the Seahawk Natatorium in the 2013-14 season home finale on Saturday. UNCW’s senior class will be recognized during the meet.

The Seahawks are coming off an impressive sweep of Wingate last weekend at home.

Junior Valtteri Halonen was named Colonial Athletic Association Swimmer-of-the-Week after winning three individual races against Wingate and swimming the leadoff leg of the winning 400 Medley Relay. For Valtteri, it was his fifth CAA honor this season.

On the women’s side, sophomore Jenson Engen continued her push for NCAA qualification in the Breaststroke events. Against Wingate she swept the 100 and 200 events with times of 1:04.14 and 2:22.07, respectively. She’ll have an opportunity to see where she stands when she competes in the 200 against Weronika Palusek, who owns the nation’s 10th fastest time in the event.

In diving, UNCW freshman standout Allen Crosby returns to competition for the first time since Nov. 9 against NC State. Crosby has been honored as the CAA Diver-of-the-Week three times this season.

The Seahawks open a two-meet road stretch to close out the regular season beginning on Feb. 1 at Campbell while the diving programs will compete against East Carolina, in Greenville.

Being recognized today are seniors Grace Kelly, Kathleen Marrese, Emily Schwartz, Rachel Sears, Ashley Smith, Caitlin Towe, Cameron Washburn, Kyle-Lynn Kotowski, Michael Baric, Matt Byrd, Eric Conrad, Christian Cremer, Joe Gallene and Gabe Thran.
