WILMINGTON, North Carolina – UNCW juniors Hannah Stephenson and Valtteri were honored yet again by the Colonial Athletic Association for the performances last weekend against ACC member Duke.

For Halonen, this is the third time this season he's been named CAA Swimmer-of-the-Week. Against Duke, he swept the Backstroke events with times of 50.63 in the 100 and 1:51.02 in the 200. Both times were season bests for Halonen.

Stephenson earned the honors for the second time this season. The backstroke from Raleigh matched Halonen in sweeping the backstroke events against Duke. Stephenson shared this week's honor with James Madison's Kelsey Holmgaard.
