Throughout the 2009-10 school year, the UMBC Dawg Blog will keep track of all of UMBC’s accolades. This week, the Retrievers swept the America East swimming awards for the second consecutive time and third time this season.

Abbey McKenney– Swimming and Diving

America East Female Swimmer of the Week

McKenney had a strong showing for the women against No. 17 William & Mary and No. 18 Delaware last weekend. She claimed a title in the 50 free (24.39) and finished second behind William & Mary in the 100 free with a time of 52.46. McKenney’s time in the 100 free is her season best and she remains in the top-10 in the conference standings.
