BRISTOL, Tenn. – Nicola Mead of the King University women's swimming team had a solid opening meet, and that turned into some weekly recognition. Mead was selected Conference Carolinas Swimmer of the Week on Tuesday morning.
Mead led King to a pair of season-opening wins over Milligan College and Lees-McRae College. She helped the Tornado win the 400 medley and 400 freestyle relays with times of 4:18.20 and 4:06.83, respectively. In the 100 yard butterfly, she won by nearly eight seconds with a time of 1:00.43.
The Tornado are in action again on October 27 when they take on Barton College and William Peace University at the Triangle Aquatic Center in Raleigh, N.C.
