Wayzata Native Dan Johnson repeats as Patriot League Scholar-Athlete of the Year

Lehigh Sports is reporting that Wayzata Native Dan Johnson has earned his second consecutive Scholar-Athlete of the year award for men's swimming and diving at Lehigh University in Bethlehem Pennsylvania. Here is an excerpt from the article:

Johnson will be looking to defend his 200 yard freestyle title from a season ago this weekend at Bucknell’s Kinney Natatorium. A two-time first-team All-Patriot League selection for the Mountain Hawks, Johnson will be looking to improve on last year’s championships where he earned two individual silver medals to go along with his gold in the 200 free.

The Wayzata, Minnesota native enters his final Patriot League Championship meet on the heels of another strong regular season, where he scored points in all 11 meets for the Brown and White. Johnson totaled 15 individual race wins during the regular season, competing in the 50, 100 and 200 yard freestyle events. He also was on six event-winning relay teams, and swept the sprint freestyle events in meets versus Patriot League rivals Lafayette and Army. Johnson heads into this weekend’s Patriot League Championships as the individual career points leader in his class.
