by | Nov 8, 2022


NEWPORT NEWS, Va. — Two weeks’ worth of Atlantic 10 swimming and diving awards were released Tuesday, and four Davidson Wildcats earned league recognition.

For the week ending Oct. 31, Shelby Stanley earned Performer of the Week honors, while Dylan Felt was named Rookie of the Week.

For this past week’s efforts, Wildcats Liam McDonough and Leah Sandock swept the Rookie honors.

Stanley, who has won the last two A-10 Most Outstanding Performer awards, won two individual events and swam on the first-place 200 medley relay (1:45.98) at Old Dominion Oct. 29. Honored for the first time this season, Stanley won the 100 fly in 57.53 and the 200 back in 2:04.96.

Felt won the 500 free (4:38.81) and 1,650 free (15:59.77) at ODU to earn his second rookie honor this season.

McDonough led all Wildcats with three individual wins against Gardner-Webb on Saturday in Cannon Pool. He won the 100 back (50.76), 200 back (1:53.52) and 200 IM (1:56.10) in his home debut.

Sandock, meanwhile, swam first on the winning 200 medley relay (1:44.87) against Gardner-Webb and UNC Asheville and took second among 14 competitors in the 100 back (57.30).

The Wildcats return to action Nov. 18-20 at the Bucknell Invitational.
