Mattar is the women's swimmer of the week. At Cleveland State last weekend, she was part of the 400 medley that placed first (3:52.43). Mattar was the runner-up in the 200 IM (2:06.46), 200 breaststroke (2:17.29) and 400 IM (4:25.66). She was on the 200 medley that finished third (1:47.33).
Sikatzki was in the pool a lot at Cleveland State and produced quality times every time.
Siktzki won the 200 IM in 1:49.87, which is a meet record. He was first in the 100 backstroke in 48.45. That time is a school, meet and pool record. In the 100 butterfly, the freshman finished first in 48:00. That time is an automatic qualifier for the NCAA Championships.
Sikatzki was second in the 200 medley (1:31.55), 400 medley (3:21.00), 800 free (6:49.88) and 200 backstroke (1:49.59). In the 200 medley, he set a school record in his individual leg - the 50 backstroke.
Mattar and Sikatzki are the first Ashland swimmers to be honored by the GLIAC this season.
