Four Members of MIT Men's Swimming and Diving Collect NEWMAC Weekly Accolades

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Four members of the MIT women's swimming and diving team collected New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) weekly honors on Monday, as announced by the league. Seniors Emmie Ryan (Avon, Ind.) and Michelle Cunningham (Wayland, Mass.), sophomore Veronika Jedryka (Arlington Heights, Ill.) and freshman Mary Thielking (Fishers, Ind.) each made up this week's relay team.

Ryan, Cunningham, Jedryka and Thielking – MIT's 400 Yard Freestyle unit – collaborated for a first place performance on Saturday with an overall time of 3:39.39. The quartet finished the event roughly four seconds ahead of U.S. Coast Guard Academy's A unit, which placed second in 3:43.62, which helped the Engineers claim a 181-53 victory against the Bears.

MIT returns to the pool on Saturday, January 17 when they travel to Tufts University for a 1 p.m. start.
