PROVIDENCE, R.I. (Nov. 26, 2008) -- University of Connecticut senior Adrian Astiz (Rockville, Md.) was name the men's BIG EAST Swimming and Diving Athlete of the Week on Wednesday for his performance in last week's Terrapin Cup. During that event, Astiz set one school record, while winning two individual events.
The Huskies’ men’s team finished in third place at the Terrapin Cup in College Park, Md., behind two first-place individual efforts from Astiz. Astiz set personal-best times in winning the 100- (49.01) and 200-butterfly (1:46.57), while the 200-yard effort broke a school record. Astiz was tireless during the three-day event, swimming in five relays as the Huskies competed against 10 schools in College Park.
The Huskies return to action on Friday and Saturday, December 5 and 6 when they travel to the United States Short Course Championship in Atlanta.
