MIAA athletes of the week
This week, we had three comets bring home MIAA athlete of the week honors, way to go comets! We had one athlete from the men’s swim and dive team, one athlete from the women’s swim and dive team and one athlete from the women’s volleyball team all bring these awards home to Olivet.
Freshman, Gavin Sutton, brought home the MIAA diver of the week award for the men’s swim and dive team by posting 243.05 points in his collegiate debut on the one-meter diving board. This was also ninth best in school history for a six-dive program. Way to go Gavin!
Sophomore, Jennifer Mann, brought home the MIAA swimmer of the week award for the women’s swim and dive team by finishing first in two individual events. Mann also broke the Upton center pool record with a personal best time of 10:54.12 in the 1,000 yard freestyle. Mann also led OC to first-place time of 2:00.54 in the 200 yard relay and anchored the 200 yard freestyle relay with the fastest split (25.74) of the race. She also had the fastest breaststroke split with a time of 32.33 seconds. Awesome job Jennifer!
Senior, Drue Mullin, brought home the last MIAA award for the comets being named the specialist of the week for the women’s volleyball team. She had a match high of 25 digs against Kalamazoo College. Mullin also served 4 of Olivet’s 15 aces along with 5 set assists. Mullin also leads the team with 346 digs and 34 aces, outstanding work Drue!
