Calvin College sophomore Hannah Chao has been named MIAA Women's Swimmer of the Week.
A native of Farmington Hills, Chao is receiving MIAA Women's Swimmer of the Week honors for the second time this season and for the third time in her career. A graduate of North Farmington High School, Chao helped Calvin defeat rival Hope 177-123 in a dual meet last Saturday in Holland.
Chao had a huge day in the win over Hope, winning the 100 backstroke (59.30) and 100 freestyle (54.19) while placing second in the 200 IM (2:15.62). She was also part of Calvin's winning 200 medley relay team that clocked in with a time of 1:48.01.
She led off the relay and was joined by junior Anna Kutschke, sophomore Valerie Edewaard and junior Emily Gunderson.
Calvin is now preparing to compete at the MIAA Championships scheduled for February 20-23 at the Holland Aquatic Center.
