Ciardelli Earns University Athletic Association Honors
Based on her performance during the Eagles' season-opening win
over Davidson College on Saturday, Emory University's
Lillian Ciardelli was named the University
Athletic Association's (UAA) Athlete of the Week for women's
swimming and diving.
Ciardelli recorded four ‘B' cut performances during last Saturday's meet. She finished second in the 50-yard freestyle in a provisional qualifying time of 24.10 seconds and fourth in the 100-yard freestyle with a ‘B' cut time of 52.89 seconds. The senior also helped two Emory relay teams to first place finishes and provisional times, swimming the second leg of the 200-freestyle relay (1:35.82) and the butterfly leg of the 200-medley relay (1:47.19).
Ciardelli, a 10-time all-American and National Champion as part of Emory's 200-freestyle relay team last season, helped the Eagles to a 164-130 win over Davidson. She and the rest of the Emory squad will return to action next Saturday, facing the University of North Carolina Wilmington and the University of Houston in Wilmington, NC.
