Mestha Garners First Career UAA Athlete of the Week Honor

Case Western Reserve University junior Suhan Mestha was named the University Athletic Association Women's Swimmer of the Week, following her performance during the 2018 Midwest Invitational in Chicago, Illinois this past weekend.

Mestha claimed the title in the 50-yard freestyle with a NCAA 'B' cut time of 23.56. She also was a member of the 200-yard medley relay that finished first in the event with a NCAA 'B' cut and new school-record time of 1:45.07. That time bests the previous school-record of 1:46.06 set at the 2017 Wooster Invitational.

Mestha's time in the 50-yard freestyle currently ranks 12th in Division III, while the women's 200-yard medley relay time of 1:45.07 ranks eighth in Division III.

The Spartans will now turn their attention towards the NCAA Division III Championships. Swimming selection to the NCAA Championships are slated to be released on Wednesday, February 28th at 10:00 a.m.
