Sophomore Derek Frenzel burst on to the scene as a freshman in 2010-11. He not only earned a bid to the NCAA Championships but came away with All-America Honorable Mention. Frenzel now looks to be a leader for the Logger swim teams on his way back to the NCAA Championships. “I expect myself to lead by example and to always encourage others to do whatever they can to make our team successful. It takes a lot of commitment to the sport, the team, and the school to be successful in and out of the pool.”
