Fiona Muir & Lucas Bumgarner Garner UAA Weekly Awards

Emory University senior swimmer Fiona Muir and freshman diver Lucas Bumgarner were named the University Athletic Association Athletes of the Week for their performances at the 2019 UAA Swimming & Diving Championships this past weekend in Chicago, IL.

Muir was named the UAA Swimmer of the Year following a superb championship meet. Muir became the first woman in UAA history to win the 100 Freestyle four straight years, doing so on Saturday in a UAA record time of 50.12. She recorded another UAA Record on Friday as she captured the 200 Freestyle title with a winning time of 1:48.70 and added a second place effort in the 50 Freestyle on Thursday, touching at 23.44. In addition to the individual finishes, Muir was a member of four relay titles: 400 Medley (3:44.97), 200 Freestyle (1:33.04), 800 Freestyle (7:27.54) and 400 Freestyle (3:23.27).

Bumgarner became the first Emory male diver to be named the UAA Diver of the Year after earning All-UAA honors in both diving events at the 2019 conference championships including the 3-meter title with his school record score of 576.15. He placed 2nd in the 1-meter with a career-high mark of 512.60.

Emory gears up for the home stretch of the season with the Midwest Invitational this upcoming Friday and Saturday.
