NORFOLK, Va. -- Junior Arni Arnason (Mosfellsbaer, Iceland) was named the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) Men's Swimmer of the Week for the second time this season.
Arnason won three individual and two relay events for the Monarchs at the annual pod meet last weekend as the ODU men's swimming & diving team claimed the top spot in all but one event in defeating William & Mary and the College of Charleston.
In addition to his first place finish in the 100 free (45.85), Arnason claimed the eighth fastest time in the ODU record books in the 200 free (1:40.84) and the fifth fastest time in Monarch history in the 200 IM (1:52.02). He swam the opening leg on the winning 200 free relay team (1:23.65) and anchored the 400 medley relay team (3:28.54) to victory as well.
The ODU men's and women's swimming and diving teams return to the pool next weekend at the UNC Nike Cup in Chapel Hill.
