Denison sophomore Walter Dauksher was named the North Coast Athletic Conference Male Swimmer of the Week after his performance against Ohio Wesleyan.
Dauksher won the 100 freestyle in 46.71 and placed first in the 200 freestyle in 1:43.82. In December, Dauksher logged a NCAA 'B' cut in the 200 free after his time of 1:38.97. That currently ranks as the nation's seventh-fastest time this year in the event.
Dauksher and the top-ranked Big Red defeated Ohio Wesleyan, 171-79 in what was their final dual meet of the season. The Big Red returns to action on Feb. 8 at the 2017 NCAC Swimming & Diving Championship that will continue through Feb. 11 at the Trumbull Aquatics Center.
