CHARLESTON, S.C. - Senior men's swimmer Matt Sherrier (Boulder, Colo.) and junior women's tennis player Olivia McMillan (Mt. Pleasant, S.C.) earned College of Charleston Student-Athlete of the Week honors sponsored by Piggly Wiggly for the week of Jan. 30.

Sherrier led College of Charleston to a dual meet victory over Gardner-Webb in the final meet before the CCSA Championships. He won a team-best three different events, including the 1650 free (16:38.81), 100 free (48.10) and the 500 free (4:47.88). He also swam the anchor leg on the first-place 200 free relay squad that finished in 1:26.28. Heading into the conference championships, Sherrier has the second-best times in the 200 free and 1000 free, and the third-best time in the 500 free in the conference.

McMillan led the CofC women's tennis team to a 4-2 tournament victory over No. 67-ranked and four-time Big South Conference champion Winthrop in the ITA Kick-Off Weekend consolation match held on Jan. 29 in Durham, N.C. With two deciding matches still being played on the court, McMillan clinched the match and the Cougars' first win of the 2012 spring season with a 7-5, 6-2 straight-set decision over Monica Aguado at No. 6 singles. She currently leads the team with a 2-1 dual mark at the No. 5 and No. 6 lines combined.
