CLEVELAND - The Cleveland State swimming and diving teams received a couple of holiday presents early as senior Audrey Gray and sophomore Warren Vickers were named Horizon League swimmers of the week for their performances at the Zippy Invitational in Akron last weekend.
This marks the second time this season that Gray (Euclid, Ohio/Brush) has earned this honor, as she continues to pace the Vikings, recording a conference-best in the 100-yard backstroke with a time of :58.32 at the Zippy Invitational. She also swam on the Vikings' 800-yard freestyle relay team that set another conference mark with a time of 7:51.94.
Leading the Vikings to a third-place finish at the Zippy, Vickers (Durban, South Africa/Durban) posted two individual first-place finishes and three first-place finishes as the anchor on relay teams. He posted conference-best times while winning the 200-yard freestyle with a time of 1:40.42 and the 200-yard individual medley in 1:54.41. Vickers also secured three relay victories for the Vikings in the 400-yard freestyle relay (3:05.38), the 800-yard freestyle relay (6:53.90) and the 400-yard medley relay (3:27.80).
The teams will spend the holidays training for the second half of the season. The Vikings compete next on January 17 at 5 p.m. when they host Youngstown State (women only).
