Wurster Named LAC Swimmer of the Week

Illinois Tech’s Jamie Wurster has been named the Women’s Swimmer of the Week by the Liberal Arts Conference after her strong showing against Lawrence on January 13.

The sophomore had a dominant weekend for the Scarlet Hawks, winning all of her events. Wurster won the 100 Yard Backstroke with a time of 1:05.81 and the 50 Yard Freestyle with a time of 26.65.  She also participated in two relays, taking first place in both the 200 yard Freestyle Relay (1:47.46) and the 200 Yard Medley Relay (1:56.57.)

This is the first weekly award for the Michigan native this season. The Scarlet Hawks are back in action on Saturday, January 20 on the road against Carroll.
