WILMINGTON, North Carolina – Junior backstroke standout Valtteri Halonen was named Colonial Athletic Association Swimmer-of-the-Week after an impressive performance against Tennessee in the season opener.

Halonen, the reigning CAA Champion in the 200 Backstroke, won the same event against the Vols with a time of 1:54.75. He added a third-place finish in the 100 Back and swam on UNCW's third-place 200 Medley Relay to open the meet.
