Kylie Warne Claims CCSA Swimmer of the Week Honor

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Campbell freshman swimmer Kylie Warne has been named the Coastal Collegiate Swimming Association (CCSA) Women's Swimmer of the Week, the league announced for the week covering action from January 24-29. This is the second time that Warne has been honored by the conference office this season as she was also named the CCSA Swimmer of Week on Nov. 10.

Warne won three individual events and was on a first-place relay team for Campbell on Friday, Jan. 28, against College of Charleston. She won the 200 butterfly (2:28.69), 400 free (4:39.27) and 200 IM (2:27.71). Warne was also part of the winning 400 free relay team that finished in a time of 4:07.92. This season the freshman has placed in the top-three of 21 individual events and earned 13 victories.

This is the second weekly award that Warne has captured in her career at CU. She is the first Campbell swimmer to ever be named the CCSA Swimmer of the Week twice in one season. She is also the third active member of CU's team to have earned a weekly award from the CCSA as senior Casey Umberger was named Feb. 17, 2009 and senior Ashlyn Stumpf took home the honors on Oct. 15, 2008.

Campbell completes the regular season this week with a dual meet against UNC Wilmington on Saturday, Feb. 5, at 11 a.m.
