CLEVELAND - Junior Paul Le was named MAC Men's Swimmer of the Week, the league announced Monday.
Le helped the Bears to a second-place finish in the Show-Me Showdown at Missouri's Mizzou Aquatics Center on Friday, Oct. 4 to open the season. He won the 100-yard backstroke in 48.50 and 200-yard individual medley in 1:49.26.
