KALAMAZOO, Mich. - Sam Ankley of the Kalamazoo College men's swimming and diving team was honored Tuesday as this week's SAAC Hornet of the Week. 

Sam competed in the one-meter and three-meter dives at the Michigan Illinois Quad over the weekend. The freshman finished first on the three-meter with a score of 446.00. His score was good for an NCAA Regional cut. He also finished second on the one-meter with a 422.45. This was just two points from an NCAA Regional cut. 

This marks the third time this season that Ankley has been named Hornet of the Week. He has also been honored by the MIAA three times as the league's Diver of the Week.

The Hornets return to action on Saturday, Jan. 18 at Alma College at 1 p.m.
