Morgan Cooper Earns Little East Conference Honor

Nov. 16, 2011

NORTH DARTMOUTH, MA-Junior Morgan Cooper(Sunderland, MA/Frontier Regional HS) of the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth's swimming team has been honored by the Little East Conference.

Cooper has been named Little East Conference Swimmer of the Week.

Cooper won five events at two meets last week. She won the 100 yard freestyle (57.84), 200 yard freestyle (2:06.21) and participated on the winning 200 yard medley team in last Tuesday's night's 139-92 win at Bridgewater State. Saturday, she won the 50 yard breaststroke (33.33) and was a member of the victorious 400 yard medley relay team (season best time of 3:56.81) at the non-team scored UMass Dartmouth Invitational.

"Morgan is such a dedicated and hard working athlete, she is deserving of such an award," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Cathy Motta. "We have moved her into events that she rarely swam last year, and she has stepped up and performed well in each of them, in addition to contributing to the success of our relay teams."

The Corsairs will return to action when they host Bentley Wednesday evening.
