For the third time in her collegiate career, Calvin College junior Anna Serino has been named the MIAA Women's Swimmer of the Week.
A native of Pinckney and a graduate of Pinckney High School, Serino had a superb set of performances Friday night in a double-dual meet with Hillsdale and Grand Valley State at the Venema Aquatic Center.
In the 200 freestyle, Serino cruised to a first place time of 1:56.12 that currently ranks seventh nationally. She also placed fifth in the 500 freestyle with a time of 5:17.86 that ranks 13th nationally.
In addition she was part of Calvin's 200 freestyle relay team that placed second with a time of 1:40.20 that ranks ninth nationally.
Serino's efforts helped Calvin defeat Hillsdale 148-86 while the Knights were topped by Grand Valley State 159-82.
"Anna had a terrific opening night," said Calvin head swim coach Dan Gelderloos. "She was not far off her career-best in the 200 freestyle in her first meet of the year which shows where she is in her training. She is poised for a big season and we are exciting to move forward as a team in the upcoming weeks."
Calvin returns to action on Friday when it hosts the MIAA Relays at the Venema Aquatic Center beginning at 6 p.m.
