OXFORD, Ohio - Senior Christen Fout (Shaker Heights, Ohio/Hawken) has won the MAC Women's Swimmer of the Week award for her two wins and a second-place finish at the IUPUI House of Champions meet last weekend.
In her first race on Thursday, Fout finished second in the 200 IM, finishing in 2:12.55, which was 1.15 seconds behind race winner Brittany Wininger of Eastern Illinois. Friday, she won the 400 IM in 4:40.80, .41 seconds ahead of EIU's Claire Garvey. Saturday, Fout won the 200 Fly in a personal best 2:10.13, .16 seconds better than IUPUI's Kelly Miller.
Fout and the RedHawks travel to the MAC Championships Thursday through Saturday at Ohio University. The team seeks its fourth straight conference championship, which would make Fout and her fellow seniors the fifth perfect class in Miami women's swimming and diving history.
