CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa – Thanks to a first-place effort and season-best time in the 200 breaststroke, Simpson swimmer Kyle McKim was named the Iowa Conference Performer of the Week for the period ending Sunday, Dec. 14.

A junior from Boone, Iowa, McKim earns the weekly honor for the second time in his career.
