Paige Witter

APPLETON, Wis. — Lawrence University standout Paige Witter has been named the Midwest Conference Swimmer of the Week for the second time this season.

Witter (Denver, Colo./Washington), a senior, picked up the honor after winning a pair of events in a dual meet at UW-Oshkosh on Jan. 7. Witter also was chosen as Swimmer of the Week on Oct. 25.

Witter showed her versatility in capturing her two wins against UW-Oshkosh. Witter grabbed first in the 100-yard butterfly in 1:02.28 and grabbed the top spot in the 500 freestyle in 5:28.33.

Led by Witter, Lawrence forged a 115-115 tie with the Titans.

This is the third time this season a Lawrence swimmer has won the conference’s weekly award. In addition to Witter’s two wins, Danielle Millin was the MWC Swimmer of the Week on Dec. 20.

The Vikings return to action on Saturday when Lawrence hosts Illinois Tech at Boldt Natatorium.
