Susan Guo Named MWC Performer of the Week

Lake Forest College swimmer Susan Guo was named Midwest Conference Performer of the Week on Tuesday after contributing to victories in four events and leading the Foresters to a first-place finish at Saturday's Monmouth College Invite.

Guo swam the butterfly leg of Lake Forest's 200-medley relay, which won the first event of the meet in 1:55.78, more than two-and-a-half seconds ahead of runner-up Grinnell College.

Returning to the pool for the first individual event, Guo touched the wall first by nearly two seconds in the 200-freestyle, which she completed in 2:04.57. The junior also prevailed in the 100-butterfly, although this time her clocking of 1:02.92 was just 0.17 seconds faster than second place.

With Guo swimming third, the Forester 400-freestyle relay team closed out the meet with a time of 3:49.37 and a victory by nearly five seconds.

Lake Forest's 138 points edged out Grinnell's 119 to win the four-team competition.

MWC performers of the Week are selected by the league office. Guo also earned the award once during her freshman season.
