NOTRE DAME, Ind. — Senior Abbie Dolan was named ACC Women’s Swimmer of the Week Tuesday after her impressive showing at Louisville on Friday, Nov. 1. Dolan accounted for three individual wins and helped gain 31 points for Notre Dame’s score.
Dolan began her dominance in the 200 Free, recording an NCAA B-Cut time of 1:46.98. She touched the wall almost three seconds ahead of the next closest swimmer, while after those three seconds, just three additional seconds separated the rest of the field.
In her second event of the night, Dolan added another win in the women’s 100 Free, posting a 50.09.
Dolan’s third win of the night came in the women’s 500 Free with a 4:49.43, and helped the Irish to a second-place finish in the women’s 400 Free Relay.
On the season, the senior has totaled nine wins in various events, including the 100 Free, 200 Free, 500 Free, 200 Medley Relay and 400 Free Relay.
The Swimmer of the Week honor marks the second consecutive week a member of the Notre Dame women’s team has earned the distinction. Freshman Coleen Gillilan last received the title on Oct. 29.
The Irish will return to the pool Friday and Saturday, Nov. 8-9, in a tri-meet with Pittsburgh and Virginia Tech. Events begin at 1:30 p.m. with the diving competition and 4 p.m. with swimming events.
