ROSEMONT, Ill. -- Sophomore Dylan Bosch (Johannesburg, South Africa/Crawford College, Sandton) of the No. 1-ranked University of Michigan men's swimming and diving team was named Big Ten Men's Swimmer of the Week, the conference office announced on Tuesday (Feb. 4). He won the award for the third time this season.
He is one of four different swimmers to receive the honor this season, joining junior Bruno Ortiz (Oct. 1, Jan. 7), senior John Wojciechowski (Oct. 15) and junior Richard Funk (Oct. 29, Jan. 21). Those four U-M swimmers have combined to win the award in 8 of 16 weeks this season.
Bosch played a big role in helping Michigan grind out a road win at No. 9 Ohio State last Saturday (Feb. 1). He took first in the 100-yard butterfly (46.63) and 200-yard butterfly (1:45.44), while taking second in the 200-yard IM (1:46.96) and as part of the 200-yard medley relay (1:28.03), meeting the NCAA 'B' standard in the first three events.
Bosch and the top-ranked Wolverines close out the dual-meet portion of the schedule on Saturday (Feb. 8) against Michigan State. The meet will begin at noon at Canham Natatorium.
