GREENSBORO, N.C.-Virginia junior swimmer Ellen Thomas (Guildford, United Kingdom) has been named the ACC Female Swimmer of the Week, the conference announced Tuesday (Jan. 19).
Thomas was undefeated in a double-dual meet against Virginia Tech and Towson last weekend (Jan. 15-16) in Christiansburg, Va. She won her two individual events, the 50-yard free (23.40) and 100 free (50.27), and was a part of four first-place relays, including the 200 free relay (1:31.67), the 400 free relay (3:21.56), the 200 medley relay (1:40.09) and the 400 medley relay (3:38.22).
It is Thomas’ first ACC weekly honor of her career.
The Cavaliers return to action this weekend when they travel to NC State on Friday (Jan. 22) and North Carolina (Jan. 23).
