Daryl Turner Receives Third Freshman of the Week Honor
Freshman Daryl Turner has won Freshman of the Week three times this season

Dec. 10, 2013

The University of Minnesota men's swimming and diving team member Daryl Turner has been named the Big Ten Conference's Freshman of the Week as of Tuesday December 10. After a successful two-day competition in the Jean Freeman Invite hosted at the University Aquatic Center by Minnesota, Turner was acknowledged for his multiple-event wins earned over that weekend. Although the Invite was not scored, the Gophers competed against eight other schools across the Midwest including Augsburg, Carlton College, Gustavus, Hamline, South Dakota State, St. John's, St. Olaf, and St. Thomas.

Over the course of the two days, Turner won six different events ranging both from team relays to individual races. The freshman placed first in the 50-yard freestyle (20.45), 100-yard backstroke (48.81), 200-yard freestyle relay (1:20.48), 200-yard medley relay (1:29.03), 400-yard medley relay (3:19.85) and 800-yard freestyle relay (6:53.09).

In his debut season with the Gophers, Turner has been no stranger to conference recognition. With the Freshman of the Week award, Turner now has won the title three times. His total amount of conference honors equals four in the season.

Daryl Turner was the last Freshman of the Week winner for the University of Minnesota, which he received on Nov. 5.

Minnesota is scheduled to leave the cold weather and travel to warmer climates as both the men's and women's teams leave on their annual Hawaii trip later this December. Both teams will face off against the University of Hawaii in a dual meet on January 11, 2014.
