DURHAM, N.C. – Junior swimmer Alyssa Marsh was selected the Duke Student-Athlete of the Week Wednesday following a record-breaking performance over the weekend at the Tennessee Invitational in Knoxville, Tenn.
Individually, Marsh broke school records in the 50-yard freestyle (22.12), 100 freestyle (49.51) and in the 100 backstroke (52.27) while taking home a victory in the 100 backstroke. She also raced to top-three finishes in the 100 freestyle and 100 butterfly and broke a fourth program record as a member of the Blue Devils’ 400 freestyle relay (3:15.32). In addition, Marsh swam on the squad’s top 200 freestyle and 200 and 400 medley relays that took second place.
With her showing over the course of the three-day meet, Marsh helped the 16th-ranked Duke women take second in the final team standings behind only ninth-ranked Tennessee.
Following the program’s annual training trip in late December, the Blue Devils resume competition Jan. 12 in the regular season home finale against Queens University of Charlotte and William & Mary.
