AUSTINTOWN, Ohio – Wilmington College men's swimming freshman Cameron Bolen has been named the Ohio Athletic Conference (OAC) Men's Swimmer of the Week, the league announced on Monday.
Bolen took part in four events for the Fightin' Quakers, winning the 50-meter breaststroke (31.48 seconds), the 100-meter breaststroke (1:11.55) as well as played a part in Wilmington's 200-meter medley relay team that won the event by touching the wall in 1:56.03. Coincidentally, it was the event Bolen finished runner-up in, the 100-meter IM, that proved to be the most important. Bolen's time of 1:05.39 was one of three Quakers to finish in the top three spots in the event to earn the team a 131-129 victory over Baldwin Wallace University.
"Cameron has done an exceptional job training since our return to the pool in early January," Head Men's Swimming Coach Trip Breen said. "The results of his hard work are really paying off."
Wilmington has a couple of weeks to train and taper for the 2021 Ohio Athletic Conference (OAC) Championships held this year at the Spire Center in Geneva, Ohio, on March 25-27.
