Grinnell's Fulgoni is MWC Performer of the Week
Grinnell College's Marco Fulgoni '12 (pictured) has been named the Midwest Conference Men's Swimming and Diving Performer of the Week. Fulgoni, from Kalamazoo, Mich. (Plainswell), had a busy and successful weekend at the Great Scot Invitational hosted by Macalester College. He was in on five event victories over the two-day meet, including first-place finishes in the 50-yard freestyle (22.22) and 100 freestyle (49.28). He also swam legs on the first-place 200 and 400 freestyle relays (1:30.27 and 3:18.27, respectively), as well as the winning 400 medley relay (3:45.31). Fulgoni also swam on the runner-up 200 medley relay team (1:42.47), third-place 800 freestyle relay squad (7:47.67) and took fourth in the 200 freestyle (1:54.97). The times in the 50 freestyle, 200 freestyle relay and 400 freestyle relay are all tops in the MWC this season. Josh Dunn of Monmouth College was co-winner of the award with Fulgoni. The Female Performer of the Week is Lake Forest College's Becky Shaak.
