For the second time this season, senior Kaela Bjornberg has been named the MAAC Swimmer of the Week.
Bjornberg helped the Saints to their ninth straight victory over Sacred Heart; winning a season-high three individual events and one relay. The senior won the 100 breast clocking in at 1:10.34 and the 200 breast in 2:30.67. Bjornberg also finished first in the 200 IM with a time of 2:16.68, four seconds faster than any other swimmer. The three individual wins put her career total to 35 individual victories. Also, she was a member of the winning 200 medley relay with her team finishing with a total time of 1:53.66.
Bjornberg will have more reason to celebrate when Siena returns to action on Jan. 19, when the Saints will welcome C.W. Post at 1 P.M. Before the meet, she will be recognized as the lone member of the Class of 2013 during the Senior Day ceremonies.
The squad currently has more than a month off from competition due to the holiday break, some of which the team will travel to Florida for their annual training trip.
