The Liberal Arts Championship (LAC) coaches have named Melissa Berkay the Women’s Swimmer of the Week for her impressive showing at the Banana Slug Invitational. Berkay won three of her four individual events and took third in her fourth event.
In each of her first place finishes, Berkay dominated the competition. In the 400 IM she bested the second place finisher by ten seconds with a time of 4:51.46. Her dominance continued in the 200 fly and the 200 IM as she led the competition by five and three seconds respectively. In the 100 fly she was barely out-touched by two Cal Lutheran swimmers, coming a mere tenth of a second behind the first and second place finishers.
