Skyline Selects Trio Of Mariners For Weekly Men’s Swim & Dive Awards

KINGS POINT, N.Y. (Nov. 25, 2019) – Three members of the USMMA men's swim & dive team were honored by the Skyline Conference on Monday when the league announced its weekly awards. Senior Nolan Monahan (Stafford, Va.) garnered Swimmer of the Week honors, while junior Gillem McMillan (Knoxville, Tenn.) was chosen as the Diver of the Week and freshman Davis Caldwell (Isle of Palm, S.C.) earned Rookie of the Week accolades. 

Monahan won all eight events he swam in last week - six individual and two as part of relays. On Saturday at the ultra-competitive USMMA Memorial Invite, the senior out-touched numerous DI and DII swimmers to win the 200IM (1:56.54), the 100 breast (57.66), the 50 free (21.13) and the 200 breast (2:09.29). 

McMillan officially punched his ticket to the NCAA Regional Diving Championship after he hit four Qualifying Marks over the Mariners' two meets last week (two on each board). In the one-meter, the junior had scores of 276.68 on Wednesday in a home win over Skyline opponent Old Westbury and 280.50 on Saturday, and in the three-meter, he scored 313.13 on Wednesday and 274.60 on Saturday. 

Caldwell won both distance events on Wednesday, touching first in the 1000 free in 10:17.76 and the 500 free in 5:02.86. On Saturday, the freshman came in fourth in the 500 free (5:00.06) ahead of Division II swimmers and fifth in the 400 IM (4:26.26).
