Kahl & Moore Garner ECAC Division III Metro Weekly Honors

KINGS POINT, N.Y. (Feb. 8, 2017) – On Tuesday, the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) announced its weekly award recipients for men's swimming & diving and two USMMA swimmers were honored – sophomore Christopher Kahl (Solomons, Md.) earned DIII Metro Swimmer of the Week and freshman Michael Moore (Los Alamos, N.M.) claimed Rookie of the Week honors.
 
Kahl picked up a big individual victory late in the meet for the Mariners in their home upset win over #10 Rowan on Saturday. He won the 200 individual medley with a time of 1:59.61 to clinch nine points for USMMA in the second-to-last event before the Mariners eventually passed the Profs and won the dual meet after the final event. Kahl was also a member of the 400 medley relay team that touched first to start the day with a time of 3:29.13.
 
Moore contributed to the Mariners' nationally-ranked Rowan on Saturday with a pair of individual victories. He touched first in both the 200 freestyle (1:46.13) and the 500 freestyle (4:48.82). The freshman also came in second place in the 200 individual medley late in the meet (behind Kahl) to help the Mariners keep pace with the Profs before eventually clinching the win in the next and final event.
