UMW's Eckhoff Named CAC Swimmer of the Week

Mary Washington sophomore NICK ECKHOFF (Williamsburg, Va./Jamestown) was selected as the CAC Men’s Swimming Athlete of the Week after winning three individual events over the weekend as the Eagles topped St. Mary’s, Marymount and Salisbury to conclude the regular season with a 6-0 record. Eckhoff, the 2010 CAC Rookie of the Year, captured gold in a rare combination of the 1,000 freestyle (10:09.10) and 100 free (48.29) against SMC, then took top honors in the 200 IM (2:01.74) in the tri-meet with Marymount and Salisbury.
