BAY CITY, Mich. – Two Lake Erie men's team swimmers – two brothers in fact -- have been tabbed as Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Swimmers & Divers of the Week over the first month of the 2013-14 season. Junior Yan Milinkovskyi (Oct. 12-13) and senior Julian Milinkovskyi (Nov. 9-10) have been awarded the weekly GLIAC honors for their efforts in the water against Findlay and Gannon (Pa.) on those two respective weekends. 

Yan Milinkovskyi won three events (100-yard butterfly, 200 fly, 100 free) in leading the Storm to a 158-100 win over Findlay on Oct. 12. Older brother Julian posted two B-qualifying times in an impressive 136-22 Storm win over Gannon (Pa.) on Nov. 9.  The senior clocked in at 56.42 in the 100-yard breaststroke and 1:51.03 in the 200-yard IM.  

The LEC men are 4-0-1 on the season.
