Monahan Named ECAC Division III Metro Men’s Swim & Dive Rookie Of The Week

KINGS POINT, N.Y. (Feb. 1, 2017) – The Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) on Tuesday announced that USMMA freshman Nolan Monahan (Stafford, Va.) was selected as the league's Division III Metro Rookie of the Week for Men's Swimming & Diving. The accolade comes after Monahan was named the Skyline Swimmer and Rookie of the Year after this past weekend's Skyline Conference Championship Meet.
 
Monahan garnered those year-end awards after leading all swimmers with five first-place finishes at the championship event. He recorded three individual wins and two as part of a relay team, while also setting one individual Skyline meet record and two relay Skyline records.
 
The rookie won the 200 freestyle in 1:46.13 (which set a new conference meet record), the 50 free (22.13) and the 100 free (47.62). He was also part of the 200 medley relay that touched first in a new Skyline record 1:36.19 and the 400 free relay in a Skyline record 3:15.55.

The program will celebrate Senior Day prior to the meet, honoring the team members of the Class of 2017. First race is scheduled for 1 p.m. at the O'Hara Hall Pool.
