BLOOMINGTON, Minn. -- Andrew Chang (Fy./Vancouver, Wash./Union) won three individual events on Saturday, helping the Carleton College men’s swimming and diving team defeat St. Olaf College in a dual meet for the first time in at least 25 years. On Tuesday, that performance was recognized with his second MIAC Athlete-of-the-Week award of the season.

Chang was first to the wall in the 100-yard butterfly (52.62), the 200-yard butterfly (1:58.90), and the 200-yard IM (2:02.42), with his 200-fly time representing a new personal best. He also swam leadoff on Carleton’s top entry in the 200-yard medley relay. Those points proved crucial as Carleton defeated St. Olaf, 145-138.

This is the third straight week that Chang has picked up an award. He received the MIAC Athlete-of-the-Week honor for Jan. 8-14, then was tabbed the conference swimmer-of-the-week for Jan. 15-21 by
