TOWSON, Md. — For breaking the school record in the 1,000-yard freestyle and placing first in two other additional events in Goucher's meet against St. Mary's (Md.) on Saturday, Morgan Richter (Cleburne, Texas/Cleburne) was named Male Swimmer of the Week in the Landmark Conference today for the seven-day period ending November 3.

In the first contested individual event of the meet, Richter shaved nearly 12 seconds off the former school record in winning the 1000 free in a time of 10:07.57. Later in the meet the sophomore also took first place in the 200 butterfly (2:02.26) and the 500 free (4:59.47).

Richter, the reigning Landmark champion in the 200 butterfly, was also selected the conference's Male Swimmer of the Week one time last season as a freshman. That was for the week of November 26-December 2, 2012.
