NEWPORT NEWS, Va. - Massachusetts freshman Heath Maginn picked up a pair of awards this week, earning Atlantic 10 Men's Swimming & Diving Rookie of the Week on Tuesday, and then ECAC Swimmer of the Week for the New England ration on Wednesday.

Maginn, a freshman from Overland Park, Kan., recorded first-place finishes in the 100-yd backstroke (54.82) and the 200-yd backstroke (1:55.41) against Bryant this past weekend. His margin of victory in the 200-yd backstroke was larger than eight seconds.

Other A-10 winners included Fordham's Shintaro Noguchi and Richmond's Mali Kobelja as the A-10 Performers of the Week, and Richmond's Irina Chiulli as the Women's Rookie of the Week.

Noguchi, a senior from Tiburon, Calif., won four individual events in two meets this past week against Iona and A-10 foe La Salle. Against Iona, Noguchi recorded first-place finishes in the 50-yd freestyle (21.37) and the 200-yd butterfly (1:57.66) along with being a part of the 200-yd medley relay team that also finished first with a time of 3:36.76.
