GREENSBORO, N.C., Feb. 11. MARYLAND'S Petra Adamkova was named ACC Women's Swimmer of the Week today, while Virginia's Luke Anderson was named ACC Men's Swimmer of the Week.
Adamkova, a senior from Nachod, Czech Republic, was part of the Terrapins' 179-121 upset victory over No. 12 and previously undefeated Virginia. She won two events, the 50 free (23.21) and the 100 free (51.13) to go along with swimming a leg on the winning 400 free relay team (3:27.05). Her times in the 50-free and 100-free were both NCAA "B" standards and season-bests.
