John Hu wins collegiate swim honor

Sophomore John Hu of the Stevens Institute of Technology (Hoboken, N.J.) men’s swimming team was named the Division III National Swimmer of the Week Oct. 27.

Hu, a graduate of Oak Harbor High School, recorded a pair of NCAA B-cuts as well as two first-place finishes in the NYU Fall Invitational in Octoboer.

Hu’s B-cuts and victories came in the 400-yard individual medley and 200-yard butterfly, turning in times of 4:01.50 and 1:53.41, respectively. He also took the top spot in the 200-yard IM with a 1:57.27, while placing second in the 200-yard backstroke (1:58.27).

In addition to the individual wins, Hu was a member of the 400-yard freestyle and medley relay teams that took first place.

Hu's Stevens teammate, Evan Wilson, also an Oak Harbor graduate, won the Swimmer of the Week award earlier this season.
