Chanas-LaRue named MPSF Swimmer of the Week
Chanas-LaRue won the 1000 freestyle, going 9:45.84, nearly 15 seconds faster than the second-place finisher last Saturday at Hyslop pool in the team's final home meet. He followed that with a third-place finish in the 200 backstroke (1:58.39), before finishing off his day by swimming the 500 freestyle in 4:46.55, taking second.
He currently holds the fifth-fastest time in the 500 freestyle (4:29.59) in the MPSF this season and is ranked eighth in the 200 free (1:39.50) and 11th in the 1650 free (15:52.57). He becomes the first UND athlete to win MSPF weekly honors this season.
UND breaks until Jan. 18-19 when it faces Wyoming, Seattle and host Air Force in a two-day meet.
