CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Virginia senior Matt McLean repeated as the Atlantic Coast Conference men’s performer of the week, the league office announced Tuesday.
McLean, a native of Sterling, Va., helped Virginia to a pair of wins over Big Ten foes Indiana, ranked 10th, and Penn State, in a two-day double dual meet over the weekend. He won four individual events and posted NCAA ‘B’ marks in two, including a time of 1:37.06 in the 200 freestyle and 4:23.28 in the 500 freestyle.
