CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va.—The Virginia men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams presented their end-of-the-year awards for 2012-13 recently at the UVa swimming and diving annual banquet.
Senior Tom Barrett and freshman Courtney Bartholomew were named the men’s and women’s Most Valuable Player awards, while senior Lauren Perdue, junior Taylor Grey and JB Kolod were honored with the Coaches’ Award for their dedication, attitude, commitment and performance that was instrumental to the team’s success.
Bartholomew and fellow freshman Luke Papendick were awarded Freshman of the Year honors as well as Performance of the Year honors in the backstroke at the NCAA Championships. Bartholomew won the consolation final in the 100 back in 51.63, the second-fastest time in school history, while Papendick won the consolation final in the 200 back in a school-record time of 1:41.50.
