Clune Receives Conference Honor

SOMERS, Wis. — Washington College junior Jenni Clune (Bowie, Md./Eleanor Roosevelt) has been selected as's Conference Swimmer of the Week for the Centennial Conference.

Clune won the 100 breaststroke in a school-record and Centennial Conference-record time at Randolph-Macon's Yellow Jacket Invitational, held Friday and Saturday.

She led off the 200 freestyle relay with a 25.11 leg to tie for the Shorewomen's seventh spot on their all-time fastest list for the 50 freestyle.

Clune also swam on two second-place relay teams and one third-place relay team at the meet. The Shorewomen were second in both the 200 medley relay and 400 freestyle relay in 1:50.88 and 3:35.12, respectively. The Shorewomen placed third in the 200 freestyle relay in 1:39.74.

Clune was named the Centennial Conference Swimmer of the Week by the conference office yesterday.
