BLOOMINGTON, Minn. -- The Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (MIAC) recognized outstanding performances from the past week with the announcement of its Athlete-of-the-Week award winner in women's swimming and diving. St. Catherine University's Jenna Nagy claimed the conference's weekly honor for the week of Dec. 5-11, 2016.
The MIAC Athlete-of-the-Week awards are nominated and selected each week by the conference's sports information directors. Each week, team sports (basketball and hockey) Athletes-of-the-Week are recognized each Monday afternoon, with individual sports (swimming and diving) announced on Tuesday afternoon.
