By Nick Freimuth Sevastopol graduate Conner McHugh became the first ever Door County resident to be named a two-time NCAA Division 1 All-American. Last weekend at the NCAA Championships, McHugh clocked a personal record and school record for the University of Minnesota in the 100 breaststroke. His time of 51.48 was good enough for sixth in the nation and All-American status.
In the 200 breaststroke, the collegiate senior swam a 1:52.00 landing him in fourth place. Any top-eight finish at the NCAA Championships equate to an All-American award.
McHugh also swam in the 200 Medley relay for the Gophers where they finished 14th. That finish landed the team honorable mention All-American status.
While the athletic achievements are incredible, Conner was an All-Big 10 Academic Scholar every year of his collegiate career.
