MDI swimmer Lydia DaCorte has been named the McDonald's Athlete of the Week after receiving the majority of the the over 1,300 votes submitted for this week's award.DaCrote claimed 51% of the vote which was enough to beat out basketball players Aspen Flewelling of Houlton and Nick Gilpin of Hampden.

DaCorte was a big reason why the Trojans took home the PVC Championship last Saturday. She took first place in both the 200 freestyle and 100 butterfly as an individual. DaCorte then swam on the first medley relay and the anchor on the 200 freestyle relay.
