Monmouth College Swimmer Sparks Recognized by Midwest Conference
Monmouth College swimmer Krysta Sparks was named Midwest Conference Co-Performer of the Week after the season's first full weekend.

Sparks - who shares the honor with Lake Forest's Becky Shaak - didn't let a pair of dual meets on back-to-back days slow her down. Over the span of 24 hours, the sophomore swam two Monmouth honor roll times and set a new pool record. Sparks set the new Monmouth pool record Friday against Knox while winning the 200-yard individual medley (2:17.76). She also clocked a personal-best in the 100 backstroke (1:08.38) and finished second.

On Saturday, she swam another honor roll time in the 200 IM (2:17.91) and narrowly missed her own pool record while winning the event for the second straight day. Competing in the 100 breaststroke, Sparks swam another honor roll time (1:10.49) to win her third event of the weekend.
