MILWAUKEE - Sophomores Emily McClellan and Becky Yokosh of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee women's swimming team were both named to the 2012 CollegeSwimming.com Division I Mid-Major All-America Swimming teams announced earlier today.
McClellan, who swam in three events at the NCAA Championships for the second-straight year, was named to the First-Team. This is the second-straight year McClellan has earned the award, doing so last year after becoming the first UWM swimming and first female for the Horizon League to compete at the national meet. This year, the sophomore was one of just 24 females in the country to earn the award.
Sophomore Becky Yokosh was also honored, being selected for Honorable Mention status.
The duo both had tremendous seasons for the Panthers, helping lead the women's team to their first Horizon League Championship since 2001. The men's team also won a league title in dominating fashion, its third straight and fourth crown in school history.
