Junior Molly Clennon (Benet Academy, Naperville, Ill.) was selected as the “Swimmer of the Week” in the College Conference of Illinois & Wisconsin after her performance last Friday in a dual meet loss at Loras. She won two individual events and also swam a leg on a second place relay on December 9 in Dubuque, Iowa.
Clennon won the 200 freestyle in 2:06.45 and the 500 freestyle in 5:41.16. She also swam a leg on the second place 200 freestyle relay team that clocked a time of 1:46.75.
Clennon has had an outstanding start to her junior season as she has the Vikings’ top times in four events so far. She stopped the watches at :58.34 in the 100 freestyle and 2:06.05 in the 200 freestyle at the Grinnell Invitational in Grinnell, Iowa on December 2-3. Her 500 freestyle time against Loras is the best for Augustana this year as is her time of 2:35.69 in the 200 backstroke at the Grinnell Invitational.
Also, Clennon has been a member of all five relay teams (200, 400 & 800 free and 200 & 400 medley) that have the best times on the squad.
A biology major, she is the daughter of Jack & Nancy Clennon of Naperville, Illinois.
