Bay City, Mich. -- Ashland University senior Maura Anderson (Lakewood, Ohio) and Grand Valley State University senior Aaron Beebe (Grandville, Mich.) were named CollegeSwimming.com's  Women's and Men's "Swimmers of the Week," respectively, for their efforts last weekend.

Maura Anderson had two individual wins at the Eastern Michigan Invitational. She won the 100 breaststroke in 1:03.98, which is a school record and an NCAA "B" cut.  Anderson also finished first in the 200 breaststroke in 2:18.64. That was a school record and an NCAA "B" cut. 

Anderson was part of the 200 individual medley that was third in 2:06.12 ("B" cut) and she was fourth in the 100 butterfly. Her time in that event was 56.12 ("B" cut).  Anderson was on the second place 200 medley (1:44.59, "B" cut), second place 400 medley (3:49.65, "B" cut) and third place 400 free relay (3:26.94, "B" cut).

Aaron Beebe has been named the DII National Swimmer of the Week for his performance at the 2011 Calvin College Winter Invitational. Beebe Hit NCAA DII "A" marks in eight events and was a part of three relays that hit "A" marks and one relay that hit a "B" standard.

Beebe hit "A" marks individually in the 200 free (1:36.56), 200 fly (1:45.97), 100 fly (48.26), 200 IM (1:49.51) and 400 IM (3:54.09).
