CLEVELAND, Ohio – Junior Kenny Fox and sophomore KT Kustritz were recognized as the North Coast Athletic Conference Men's and Women's Swimming & Diving Athletes of the Week for their performances at the Miami (OH) Invitational this past weekend in Oxford, Ohio.
Earning her third NCAC Athlete of the Week honor, Kustritz set a new national record and NCAA 'A' cut time in the 100 breaststroke on Friday night, touching the wall in 1:00.50. The previous record of 1:00.54 was set back in 2006 by Lindsay Payne of Williams College, making it the oldest record remaining in NCAA Division III to be broken. She also broke her own varsity record in the 200 breast with a winning time of 2:14.33 and recorded a personal-best in the 200 IM with a first-place finish of 2:01.66.
On the men's side, Fox produced four victories at Miami, including three 'B' cut times and the nation's top time of the season in the 100 fly, winning the event with a 48.15. He also tallied a fourth-place finish in the 100 free (45.14) and fifth in the 50 free (20.68), both finished as 'B' cut times. His three remaining victories on the weekend came in relay competition, as he helped post a 1:21.33 in the 200 free, a 3:15.47 in the 400 medley and a 1:28.74 in the 200 medley relay.
The women's team totaled 728 points for a third-place finish in Oxford, while the men's team recorded their fifth-straight victory at the Miami Invitational with 1,467 points.
