STANFORD, Calif.-- Stanford swimmer and former NCAA 100 butterfly champion Austin Staab (Westerville, Ohio) was named collegeswimming.com's national swimmer of the week following three wins over Pacific last week.
The Stanford senior, who took home his only national title in March, 2009, picked up wins in the 100 fly with a time of 50.40, the 100 free with a mark of 45.42 and the 200 free with a time of 1:40.67.
The 13-time All-American is also a four-time Pac-10 Champion, who holds the school-record in the 200 free (1:32.71) and the 100 fly (44.18).
Staab was also named the national swimmer of the week in November, 2009.
The Cardinal men, ranked No. 3 nationally to enter the dual season, will next compete at Arizona on January 21 and at Arizona State on January 22. The meets will be combined with the women's team and will also feature the full diving team.
