After a wild weekend at the Hokie Fall Invitational, William and Mary junior Megan Howard (McLean, Va.) was named the CAA co-Swimmer of the Week on Tuesday.  It was Howard's third award of the season, joining honors won Oct. 15 and Nov. 12.

Swimming both prelims and finals in three individual events, Howard won five of the six races including all three finals, and earned six NCAA provisional qualifications along the way.  She won the 50 free in 24.43 seconds, the 100 fly in 54.03 seconds, and the 100 free in 49.83 seconds.  Howard set lifetime-bests in all three events, including the 100 free where she timed 49.68 seconds in the prelims, and broke her own school record in the 100 fly by more than half a second.  She also led off the Tribe's 200 free relay team that won the event in 1:32.19, the second-fastest time ever at W&M, and helped the 400 free relay, 200 medley relay, and 400 medley relay all post top-four finishes.  At the conclusion of the fall season, Howard leads the CAA in all three of her individual events.  She has more than doubled her career wins total with 19 already this season, and has almost scored as many points this fall (258.5) as she did all of last season when she led the Tribe with 338.25 points.

William and Mary is off for exams, holidays, and training, but will resume action on Jan. 11 hosting Davidson at 1 p.m.
