Cervone Named ACC Performer of the Week

Nov. 10, 2010

CLEMSON, SC – Clemson sophomore swimmer Tori Cervone was named the ACC Women’s Performer of the Week for her efforts in the Tigers’ victory over Georgia Tech on Friday, November 5.

Cervone is Clemson’s first recipient of the honor this season. She was victorious in three events in her squad’s 192-108 win over the Yellow Jackets in its conference opener.

“I am excited to see Tori’s progress this season,” Head Coach Christopher Ip said. “She has demonstrated her versatility and wiliness to be competitive in a variety of events for the Tigers. We challenged our underclassmen to step it up and Tori has taken the lead.”

The Closter, NJ native showcased her versatility at McHugh Natatorium on Friday night. She reached the wall first in the 200 free with a time of 1:52.54. Her time of 2:03.62 was best in the pool in the 200 back and contributed to a Clemson sweep of the backstroke events. She also won the 200 IM with a time of 2:08.94. In addition, the sophomore anchored the Tigers’ victorious 400 free relay unit. The foursome clocked in at 3:29.42, and Cervone registered a 52.95 split.

Cervone has been an integral part of the Clemson women’s swimming and diving team’s 2-1 start this season. She has a 6-2 dual meet record in individual events, with one second-place finish and one fourth-place finish. She is a perfect 3-0 in the 200 back, and her 400 free relay team is unbeaten at 3-0 this season.

Cervone and the rest of the men’s and women’s swimming and diving team will be back in the pool on November 19 for the three-day Georgia Tech Invitational in Atlanta, GA.
