Lauren Scotti Named Horizon League Women's Swimmer of the Week

INDIANAPOLIS - Freshman Lauren Scotti was selected as Horizon League Women's Swimmer of the Week after leading the Butler swimming team to victories over Valparaiso and Monmouth last weekend. It was the first career honor for Scotti and the second for a Bulldog swimmer this season.

Scotti, from Naperville, Ill., placed first in the 50 free (26.15) and 100 back (1:02.99). She also swam the anchor leg of BU's winning 200 medley relay squad (1:55.65) and posted a split of 25.92.

Butler won the three-team meet at Valpo, beating the host Crusaders 56-39 and Monmouth 74-29.

Scotti is the second BU swimmer honored this season, joining Lauren Lambrecht. Lambrecht was swimmer of the week after leading Butler to a dual win over Eastern Illinois earlier in the season. 

Butler has won meet left before the Horizon League Swimming Championships are held in Milwaukee Feb. 22-25. BU will swim against IUPUI and Rose Hulman at IUPUI Natatorium this weekend.
