Sonnek Earns Second-Straight All-America Award In 100 Breaststroke

Posted on March 23rd, 2018 by


INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – For the second consecutive year, Tanner Sonnek (Jr., North Mankato, Minn.) finished seventh in the 100 breaststroke at the NCAA Division III Swimming & Diving Championships to earn All-America status. Sonnek touched the wall in 54.85 in the championship finals after posting a preliminary time of 54.95 during the morning session.

Sonnek is the first Gustavus men’s swimmer to earn back-to-back All-America awards in the same event since Whitaker Davis did so in the 1650 freestyle in 2010 and 2011.

Sonnek will race in the 200 breaststroke on Saturday, looking to earn another second-straight All-America honor as he finished in fifth place last year.
