McKenna and Zdanowski sweep weekly conference awards

Freshman Brian McKenna and sophomore Devin Zdanowski were named America East Swimmer and Diver of the Week, respectively, last week to earn the Binghamton University men’s swimming and diving program a sweep of the Conference’s weekly awards. The duo propelled the Bearcats to their first dual win of 2012-13 at Canisius College on Dec. 3.

McKenna captured gold in the 50 free and 100 free at Canisius and was a member of the first-place 200 free relay team that broke the Canisius pool record with a time of 1:26.55. The day prior at Bucknell University, the freshman took first in the 50 free.

Zdanowski’s AE Diver of the Week honors were the third of his career. The sophomore posted four total wins on the weekend against Bucknell and Canisius, recording the Conference’s second-highest point total in the three-meter board on Saturday and the second-highest point total in the one-meter board the following day.
