EDISON, N.J. - Loyola University Maryland Brennan Morris (Lutherville, Md.) was named the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference's Men's Swimmer of the Week after winning three individual events at last weekend's tri-meet against George Mason and Navy.

Morris, a two-time MAAC Most Outstanding Swimmer of the Year, went undefeated in individual events at the season-opening event, winning the 1000-yard freestyle in 9:23.45. The junior followed that up with a victory in the 200-yard backstroke (1:49.92) and wrapped up the day with a first-place finish in the 500-yard freestyle (5:31.53).

This honor marks the 10th weekly award for Morris throughout his career, first this season.

Loyola will return to action this weekend hosting its annual Alumni Meet on Saturday. Events are scheduled to begin at 1 p.m.
