South Dakota State junior Donovan Taylor was honored Tuesday as the Summit League Men’s Swimmer of the Week after winning two events at the Minnesota Challenge. That performance has also garnered him the Collegian Sports Athlete of the Week.

A native of Fort Frances, Ontario, Taylor captured both the 200-yard individual medley and the 200 butterfly with respective times of 1:54.60 and 1:54.77 during the two-day meet in Minneapolis Feb. 5 to 6. Taylor added a fourth-place of 4:14.27 in the 400 individual medley.

Taylor was one of two Jackrabbits honored by The Summit League as McKenna Shallberg was honored as Women’s Swimmer of the Week.

The Jackrabbits will not compete again until the Summit League Championships Feb. 17 through Feb. 20 in Indianapolis.
