Weber named 2011-12 SCAC Swimmer of the Year
Centre College sophomore Clark Weber has been named the 2011-12 SCAC Female Swimmer of the Year by the conference head coaches.
The Louisville, Ky. native earned three NCAA "B" cuts in winning the 200 free, 500 free and 1650 free– setting records in all three events at the SCAC Championships. She also helped anchor the Colonels' SCAC Championship relay teams in the 200 and 800-yard free. The 800-yard free relay team earned an NCAA "B" cut time and qualified for the National Championships. Weber was also named SCAC Swimmer of the Meet for the second straight year.
At the NCAA Championships, Weber earned all-America honors with her sixth-place finish in the 1650 freestyle with a time of 17:07.2, the highest individual finish of any SCAC female swimmer at nationals. She also received Honorable Mention all-America honors as a member of the 800-free relay team as the Colonels placed 16th (7:44.37) at the 2012 national meet and earned the program just its second all-American honor in a relay.
"Clark has been a pleasure to coach for the past two years. Her work ethic in the pool is second to none. We hope that Clark will continue to be a force in the new conference," said Centre head swim coach Dean Brownley.
Weber scored 518 total points for the Colonels in her sophomore campaign, putting her at 1,035 points through her first two years at Centre. She currently sits in 13th place on the all-time Centre scoring list.
