Northeastern senior Megan Clark was named the Colonial Athletic Association Women’s Swimmer of the Year for the second straight season Thursday.

Clark had qualified for the NCAA Championships for the third straight season before that event was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Clark re-set the school record in the 100 freestyle at 48.46 seconds, bettering her school mark.

The only Northeastern swimmer to win the award, Clark’s career ends with Huskies records in the 50, 100 and 200 free and as part of four relays (200 and 400 free, 200 and 400 medley).

Clark won the 50 free (22.44 seconds) and 100 free (48.67) at the CAA Championships. She also won the B final of the 200 free with the second-fastest time in the finals at 1:47.60. Each of those times was slightly slower than her season-bests at the Terrier Invite Invitational in the fall (22.34 in the 50, 1:47.30 in the 200).
