Men's swimming senior Tate Wegehaupt (Tigard, Ore./Tigard) and women's track and field junior Jazmin Taylor (Rock Island, Ill./Rock Island) have been named the Valparaiso athletic department's Athletes of the Month for the month of February.
Frederick Jenny collected an eighth-place finish in the men's 100 yard breaststroke at the Horizon League Championships in Cleveland. Ciara Lightner hit the wall in under a minute in the 100 yard backstroke.
Swimming and diving head coach Howard Hunte talked with host Brad Collignon about his team's goals heading into the Horizon League Championships this week in Cleveland, and to reflect upon what his five seniors have meant to the Crusader program.
On Senior Day, Tate Wegehaupt won the 100-yard breaststroke with a 58.93 time but Cleveland State prevailed 109-89 on the men's side. The Crusader women dropped their meet 121-69, but won the 200 yard freestyle relay thanks to a 1:46.53 finish.
Valpo's swim meet versus Cleveland State has been moved to Friday, February 7th at 3:00 pm at the ARC. Cheer on the Crusaders as they honor seniors Tate Wegehaupt, Andrea Bretl, Katie Meunier, Katrina Peters, and Ali Taubert for their service to the men's and women's swim teams.
