Penn State swimming: Ryan earns national honor

Penn State’s Shane Ryan was named Counsilman-Hunsaker Men’s Division I Swimmer of the Week on Saturday.

The sophomore earned his first career national award after taking part in four wins last weekend. He took first in the 50-yard freestyle and 100 backstroke, and also helped the 400 medley and 400 free relay teams to wins.

He added second-place finishes in the 100 freestyle and 200 free relay in a meet with Texas and Virginia.
