 RICHMOND, Va. (October 29, 2013) – UNCW junior Valtteri Halonen and Towson senior Alex Cohen have once again been named CAA Men’s Swimmer and Diver of the Week, respectively.

Halonen’s third weekly honor of the young season comes on the heels of a solid weekend in which he set season-best times in both the 100 and 200 backstroke. Versus ACC member Duke, the Finland native swept the events with times of 50.63 and 1:51.02, respectively.

Cohen, like Halonen, won the award for the third time this fall. The senior from Abington, Pa., contributed to the Tigers’ 163.50-128.50 victory over Old Dominion by placing first in the one-meter (280.13) and three-meter (268.20) diving events. The Tigers are off to a 4-1 start.
