EDISON, N.J. - Loyola College swimmers Tori Kamauff and Ozzy Torres won the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Swimmers of the Week Awards this week, the conference announced today, after each posted excellent performances on Saturday.

Kamauff helped the Greyhounds' women's team defeat Georgetown, Lafayette and Seton Hall, while Torres paced the Loyola men's team to win over the three schools, as well.

Kamauff, had a strong day in the pool for Loyola, winning three individual events. She also was the anchor on Loyola's winning 400-meter freestyle relay that edged Lafayette's entry by 0.33 seconds with a time of 3:33.29.

Individually, Kamauff won the 200-yard freestyle (1:56.66), 200-yard backstroke (2:10.13) and the 500-yard freestyle (5:11.97).

Torres won two individual events, and was a part of two victorious relays on Saturday. He won the 100- and 200-yard butterfly races, clocking times of 50.81 and 1:53.92, respectively.

Torres also swam the fly leg of the 400-yard medley relay, a team that swam the third-fastest time in school history, 3:25.72. He closed the meet by leading off the 400-yard freestyle relay, a race won by Loyola in 3:10.25, the fifth-best time in school history.

The awards are the second and third of the season for Loyola. Sophomore Sam McQuaid was named the Men's Swimmer Of The Week following the Greyhounds' first meet of the season in October.

Loyola returns to the water on Friday for the Thomas Murphy Invitational. The Greyhounds host men's and women's teams from Johns Hopkins and Virginia Military Institute and the women's team from St. Francis (Pa.).
