CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – After a successful weekend against Babson College, Bowdoin College and Wellesley College, four members of the No. 11 MIT women's swimming and diving team collected New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) weekly honors. Junior Sarah Osmulski (Rumson, N.J.) was named the women's swimmer of the week for the first time in her career. She was also a part of the women's relay team of the week – the 200 medley relay – which was made up of classmate Lena Yang (East Stroudsburg, Pa.), sophomore Veronika Jedryka (Arlington Heights, Ill.) and freshman Jessica Chen (Rockville, Md.).

Osmulski earned a NCAA B cut en route to winning the 200 butterfly (2.08.51) on Friday against Wellesley. She also helped the 200 medley relay team clock a time of 1:47.44 (currently ranked 4th in the nation) and 200 freestyle relay (1:37.64) against the Blue. On Saturday, Osmulski was on the winning 200 medley relay team (1.48.08) and won the 100 butterfly (58.89) against Bowdoin and Babson.

The quartet of Osmulski, Yang, Jedryka and Chen registered a time of 1:47.44 in the 200 medley relay. Their time is currently the fourth fastest time in the country, which helped them claim first place in the event against Wellesley by more than two and a half seconds.

MIT returns to the pool on Friday, December 5 when they compete in the MIT Invitational. The three day event begins on Friday and concludes Sunday, December 7.
