Coyote Swimmers Honored

South Dakota sophomore swimmer Ian Ford and divers Dustin Gens and Greysen Hertting were named Summit League performers of the week for the period ended Oct. 21. Ford and Gens are first-time honorees while Hertting is Diver of the Week for the second week in a row.

Ford is Swimmer of the Week after winning all three individual events he competed in against North Dakota Friday. The Cedar Rapids, Iowa, native won the 100 back in 1:00.33 and the 200 back in 2:11.98. His 200 back time ranks third in the league and his 100 back is fourth. Ford also finished first in the 200 IM with a time of 2:17.20 and swam the lead-off leg for the Coyotes’ second-place 200 medley relay team.

Gens had a pair of top-three finishes, including a league-best score, against North Dakota. The sophomore from Winsted, Minn., finished second in the one-meter dive with a league-high score of 273.80. Gens finished third in the three-meter with 257.05 points, which ranks third in the league.

Hertting added three event wins and a second-place finish to her season tally. In a dual meet against Iowa State, the freshman from Appleton, Wis., swept both boards with season-best scores. She tallied a league-best score of 263.10 in the three-meter and a score of 257.25 in the one meter, which ranks second-best in the league. Hertting also finished first in the one-meter (245.5) and second in the three-meter (246.10) against North Dakota. She has won five-of-six diving events this season.
