Emily Miehlke of the swim team is the Hollins Student-Athlete of the Week. Last Saturday, the Hollins swim team faced three other Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) foes in a quad-meet hosted by Roanoke College. Hollins went 2-1, besting Ferrum and Randolph, falling only to their cross-town rivals from Roanoke. Miehlke recorded the only individual win of the meet when she paced the field in the 100 Freestyle. Emily posted a time of 1:01.78, a full second ahead the runner-up. The first-year swimmer also secured a pair of third place finishes in a meet that saw Hollins claim 15 of the 33 top three spots. Miehlke added third place points in both the 50 and 200 Freestyle races.
