RICHMOND, Va. - Old Dominion's Arni Arnason (Mosfellsbaer, Iceland) and Erla Haraldsdottir (Njardvik, Iceland) were named Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) Co-Swimmers of the Week it was announced Tuesday by the conference office.

Arnason's weekly award is his fifth of the season, while Haraldsdottir earns her second.

Arnason, in back-to-back weeks collecting the weekly award, tallied three top individual finishes on Saturday as the Monarchs were edged, 163-136, by NC State in their season finale. The junior standout touched in a time of 55.43 to capture the 100 breast and clocked a 2:02.47 to cruise to victory in the 200 portion of the event. The Icelander also sprinted to victory in the 50 free with a time of 20.90 and picked up a fourth win when he swam the second leg of the winning 200 medley relay squad.

Haraldsdottir touched in for two first-place finishes on Saturday as Old Dominion fell, 194-99, to ACC foe NC State in their dual finale. The Lady Monarchs junior and Icelandic Olympian opened the afternoon by swimming the second leg on the winning 200 medley relay squad. She collected her second gold of the afternoon when she bested the field in the 100 breast in a time of 1:04.28.
