Junior swimmers Dallas Tarkenton and Anna Corley, who both qualified individually for the NCAA Championships, have been named as the UMW Wagner Wealth Management Athletes of the Month for February.
Tarkenton led the UMW men's team to its 16th consecutive Capital Athletic Conference championship, and 22nd overall, and will advance to the NCAA Championships in several weeks, competing in the 100 yard butterfly (in which he is seeded eighth), as well as the 200 IM and 200 butterfly.
Corley was named CAC Swimmer of the Year after leading the Eagle women to their 26th straight CAC Championship. She qualified individually in the 200 IM, in which she is seeded 10th, and will also swim the 100 yard breaststroke and the 200 yard backstoke. She will also swim on all relays, as the Eagles saw relays advance to NCAAs as well.
