Malarie Schmidt and Chris Heaton

Our new co-Hawks of the Week are women's senior swimmer Malarie Schmidt and men's senior diver Chris Heaton.  Both athletes set MAC and Miami records over the weekend at the Miami Invitational.

In racing to a second place finish, Malarie set a new Miami and Mid American Conference record in the 100 backstroke with a time of 55:07.  She also helped Miami's 400 medley relay team shatter another conference and school record with a winning time of 3:41.98.  Between individual and relay events, Malarie had five victories and one second place finish to help Miami win the Invitational by a whopping 943 points. 

Chris set a new MAC and Miami record in the three meter diving event with a total score of 406.85, shattering the old conference record by almost 50 points.  In addition to his winning performance in the three meter competition, Chris also finished second in the one meter event.  Overall, the men placed third at the event.

For the season, the women's team is 7-1, including 4-0 in the MAC while the men's team is 2-5.  Both teams next compete at a dual meet in mid-January against the University of Cincinnati.

Congratulations to Malarie and Chris on their outstanding meets and on being named our Hawk of the Week.
