@ACCSwimDive: McCrory, Reaney Each Nab Fourth Weekly Honor of the Season


North Carolina’s Corish and Heck also take home honors

GREENSBORO, N.C. (theACC.com) – Notre Dame’s Emma Reaney and Duke’s Nick McCrory each received their fourth ACC swimming and diving weekly award of the season, after they were named Female Swimmer of the Week and Male Swimmer of the Week, respectively. Also earning weekly honors were North Carolina’s Logan Heck and Kelly Corish.

North Carolina’s Heck led two relay teams to top finishes versus Navy and won a pair of individual events on his own, as the Tar Heels improved to 4-2 in dual meet action.  Heck had comfortable wins in the 50 and 100 freestyles, winning the 50 by .16 and taking the 100 by a half-second.  Heck anchored the 200 medley relay to a two-second win over the top Navy relay, splitting the freestyle leg in a meet best 19.75 seconds.  North Carolina also had the fastest time in the 400 free relay, clocking a 3:02.30 against Navy’s top relay time of 3:04.97.  Heck’s 45.50 split was the best split of the Tar Heel relay.

North Carolina’s Corish swept both diving events in the Tar Heel women’s win over Navy.  Both of her scores achieved NCAA zone diving standards.  She had a season-high score of 265.20 in the one-meter event and posted a score of 280.28 in the three-meter dive, good enough for a margin of victory of more than 40 points over the second-place finisher.

Notre Dame’s Reaney, who is ranked first in the nation in the 200 breast and sixth in both the 100 breast and 200 IM, won three individual events and a relay to help the Irish top Rutgers and Northwestern this past weekend. A four-time ACC Female Swimmer of the Week, Reaney has won 26 of 34 finals swims this season counting individual races and relays.

Duke’s McCrory, who remains undefeated on the season with seven first-place finishes, earned his fourth ACC Male Diver of the Week award after posting two first-place finishes in a dual meet against No. 25 South Carolina. McCrory posted a one-meter score of 379.27 and a three-meter score of 435.38. The senior from Chapel Hill, N.C., owns ACC best marks in the one-meter (446.5), three-meter (504.0) and platform (460.3).
