W&L's Sykes Named BGMC Swimmer of the Week

SPARTANSBURG, S.C. – Senior Rick Sykes (Wellesley, Mass./Wellesley) has been named the Bluegrass Mountain Conference Swimmer of the Week, as announced by the league on Monday.

Sykes led the Generals with two first-place finishes at the Wingate Quad Meet last weekend. He clocked in at 46.65 to take the top spot in the 100 free on Friday, and then swam an NCAA "B" cut time of 20.61 in the 50 free to record his second win of the meet on Saturday. Sykes' performance in the 50 free is currently ranked No. 2 in the nation in Division III.
