WRUF’s Tori Petry caught up with SEC Swimmer of the Week Dan Wallace to talk to him about the honor and find out a little more about the Scottish-born athlete for this week’s Gator Spotlight.
Wallace earned the honor after winning all of his individual events at the SMU Invitational and posting the 4th-best 400 IM time in the nation. Florida’s Elizabeth Beisel was also the women’s SEC Swimmer of the Week.
The recognition for these two Gators comes as the team prepares to take on Auburn in a dual meet this weekend in the O’Connell Center. The Florida men broke Auburn’s 16-year streak as SEC Champions last year when they captured the conference title. The matchup begins at 11:00 AM on Saturday.
