SMU Announces 2013 Athletics Hall Of Fame Class

Birdwell, Carter, Frölander, McIlhenny, Herrscher & Stewart To Be Honored

One of the great swimmers in SMU history, Frolander dominated the pool during his career as a Mustang (1995-98). Frolander was the 1998 NCAA Swimmer of the Year, winning the NCAA Championship in two events - the 100 meter freestyle and 100 meter butterfly. Frolander won the same pair of championships in 1997 and the 100 Butterfly as a freshman in 1995. Frolander also participated in six Olympic Games (1992, 1996, 2000, 2004, 2008, 2012), representing his native Sweden. Frolander took the gold medal in 100 Butterfly in the 2000 Olympics in Sydney, and also took silver medals in the 4x200 free relay in 1992 (Barcelona) and 1996 (Atlanta).
