Medeiros Named NE-10 Rookie of the Week for Second Time

Easton, Mass. -- Assumption College freshman Katherine Medeiros (Mattapoisett, Mass./Bishop Stang) has been named as the Northeast-10 Conference Women’s Swimming Rookie of the Week for her performance in a pair of meets last weekend. This is the second weekly honor for Medeiros and the third rookie honor for Assumption this season.

Me­deiros captured three individual events, including a pool-record vic­tory in the 100-freestyle, and was on two first-place relay teams in a pair of meets for the Hounds. In a tri-meet with No. 3 ranked Bridge­port and WPI, Medeiros was victorious in the 100-yard butterfly (1:01.00), and helped the team to a meet-opening win in the 400-medley relay. In a 114-90 win over Division I Sacred Heart, Me­deiros set a pool record in the 100-free in 56.71, along with capturing the 50-yard freestyle in 26.39. She was also a member of the victori­ous 400-yard medley relay team.
