Nathan Ulm Named MWC Performer of the Week

Lake Forest College swimmer Nathan Ulm was named Midwest Conference Performer of the Week on Tuesday for his performance at Saturday's Monmouth Invite.

Ulm prevailed in back-to-back events by less than a half-second combined at the four-team competition. His margin of victory in the 50-freestyle, which he won with a time of 22.91, was just .07 seconds. The next event was the 100-butterfly, which Ulm took in 55.16 seconds, .38 ahead of the runner-up and the second-fastest time in the conference so far this season.

In addition to his individual event triumphs, Ulm helped the Foresters' 200-medley relay place third in 1:42.95 and the 200-freestyle relay finish second with a time of 3:22.23.

Lake Forest won the meet with 126 points, two more than runner-up Grinnell College.

MWC Performers of the Week are selected by the league office.
