Damiecki, 200 Free Relay Team Collect NEWMAC Weekly Honors

WESTWOOD, Mass.—The Babson College men's swimming & diving program collected a pair of honors when the New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) announced its weekly award winners on Monday afternoon.

Senior Alex Damiecki (Centerville, Mass.) was selected as the league's swimmer of the week, while the quartet of senior Jack Lucero (Huntington Beach, Calif.), juniors Lachlan Dibbayawan (Bangkok, Thailand) and Kevin Luu (Malden, Mass.), and sophomore Aiden Asuncion-Duong (Ladera Ranch, Calif.) were tabbed as the conference's relay team of the week.

Damiecki won a pair of individual events and was a part of three victories in all in Saturday's 117-83 dual meet triumph over Clark on Saturday. He won the 200-yard freestyle with a season-best time of 1:47.13, and then posted a career-best time of 4:59.40 to finish first in the 500-yard freestyle. Damiecki wrapped up the meet by helping Babson to a triumph in the 200-yard medley relay.

Lucero, Dibbayawan, Luu and Asuncion-Duong clocked in with a time of 1:31.25 to take first place by more than a second in the 200 free relay on Saturday against Clark.

Babson, which is 7-0 in dual meet competition, wraps up the semester with the three-day Gompei Invitational at WPI beginning on December 6.
