Jeff Bentz Named MAC Swimmer of the Week
CLEVELAND - The Mid-American Conference announced Wednesday that junior Jeff Bentz (Overland Park, Kan.) has been named swimmer of the week.
At the Delta State Christmas Invitational, Bentz was the top performer for Missouri State. He led the Bears to a first-place finish over conference foe Evansville. In the meet, Bentz won the 50-yard freestyle with his time of 21.08, the fifth-fastest time in the MAC this season. He has also an essential cog on numerous relay events. The Bears won the 400-yard medley relay and 400-yard freestyle relay with his help. Bentz was able to score in every event he competed in at Delta State.
This is Bentz's first Swimmer of the Week award. Teammate and fellow sprinter, senior Dillon Burns (Olathe, Kan.) earned the honor on Oct. 27.
Missouri State will return to action on Jan. 7-8 at the Tunica Invitational in Tunica, Miss.
