BOSTON, Mass. - VMI's John Kim has been named the America East Men's Swimmer of the Week, according to information released by the conference Tuesday. Kim is VMI's first weekly honoree in the conference, which the Keydets joined prior to this season.
The fifth-year senior earned the award by winning the 200-back Saturday against William & Mary, doing so in 1:53.50, just off his school record time set in 2014. He also led VMI to a pair of second-place relay finishes in the dual meet loss.
VMI swimming and diving will return to action Wednesday night, competing in Baltimore at Loyola (Md.). The meet begins at 5 p.m.
