NORTON, Mass. – Wheaton College senior Adrianne Madden (Falmouth, Maine/Falmouth) and the women's 400-medley relay team collected weekly swimming and diving honors from the New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) on Monday.

Madden was a double-winner against WPI on Saturday claiming victories in the 50-free (24.45) and the 100-free (54.98). Madden's 50-free time currently ranks eighth in the NEWMAC, while her 100-free time ranks in the top-20. Madden also aided Wheaton's 400-medley relay to a first place finish (4:09.91).

In the 400-medley relay, Madden, freshman Kelley Baylis (Newtown, Conn./Newtown), senior Nina Lanctot (Chatham, Mass.) and junior Cara Morris (Irvington, N.Y./Irvington) placed first against WPI on Saturday with a combined time of 4:09.91.
