Edison, N.J - Loyola's Jacob Drannan was named the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Men's Swimmer of the Week today after a tremendous performance in the H2Ounds Invitational last weekend.

Drannan started the dual meet with first place finishes in the 500-yard freestyle and the 200-yard individual medley. He also earned a second-place finish in the 200-yard butterfly with a time of 1:53.93 in the final session on Saturday.
