FORT WORTH – TCU men’s swimmer Matt Korman and women’s golfer Sanna Nuutinen have been named the TCU Athletes of the Week for the performances over the past week.
Swimming in his TCU debut, Korman won two events for the Horned Frogs as they rolled to a 111-89 dual-meet win over Centenary College.
The Magnolia, Texas, native picked up a win in the 200-individual medley with a 1:58.12 and followed with a 59.50 for top honors in the 100-breast. He was the lone TCU swimmer to have two individual event wins on the night.
Nuutinen carded rounds of 74, 73 and 69 at last week’s Windy City Collegiate Classic to finish in a tie for fourth in the individual medalist race. Her 216 total was good for even par on the par-72 layout.
The final-round 69 was the second-best round of the Helsinki, Finland, native’s Frog career. She rattled off four birdies over the past 11 holes boosting TCU to a fourth-place finish in the team competition.
