Macki Leon Named OAC Women's Swimmer of the Week

AUSTINTOWN, Ohio – Wilmington College women's swimming senior Macki Leon has been named the Ohio Athletic Conference (OAC) Men's Swimmer of the Week, the league announced on Monday.

Leon took part in four events for the Fightin' Quakers, winning all of them. The Ashland, Ohio, native tallied convincing victories in the 50-meter backstroke (32.82 seconds), the 100-meter backstroke (1:09.36) and the 100-meter IM (1:11.81). She also played a part in the Fightin' Quakers' winning 200-meter freestyle relay squad that touched the wall in 1:58.29.

"I'm very happy for Macki as she has swum really well in all four of our dual meets," Head Women's Swimming Coach Trip Breen said. "Even with this shortened season, after the dual meet win against Baldwin Wallace University, Macki accumulated more points for her team than any individual in program history."

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.
