Oct. 2, 2012
GREENSBORO, N.C. – Florida State senior Mark Weber and junior Tiffany Oliver have been named the Atlantic Coast Conference Male and Female Swimmers of the Week, announced Tuesday by the conference office.
Weber turned in the top time in the early NCAA season in the 50 free with a 20.03 swim in the prelims of the event at the All-Florida Invite this weekend. Earlier in the opening finals session, the native of Warner Robins, Ga., was a part of the winning 200 free relay team that posted a time of 1:20.09, which is also the top mark early in the year. Weber split a 19.30 on the anchor leg of that race. At the end of the meet, Weber anchored the 400 free relay team to a second place finish after splitting 43.81.
Oliver turned in the top time in the 100 Free in the first weekend of collegiate competition at the All-Florida Invite. This was the earliest in the season that the native of Southwest Ranches, Fla., has broken the 50-second barrier in the 100 free. Oliver was also a part of every relay this weekend, leading off both the 200 free relay with a split of 23.25 and the 100 free at 50.29.
