Weeks' performance helped lead the Tar Heels to an impressive double dual victory over Michigan and Harvard. Weeks also finished second in the 200-yard freestyle with a career best time of 1:49.69 and second in the 100-yard butterfly in 55.90.
In relays, Weeks swam on the 800-yard freestyle relay team which took first place on 7:26.26, on the 400-yard

Virginia junior diver Pete Amstutz (St. Joseph, Mich./
St. Joseph) has been selected as the Atlantic Coast Conference Men's Swimming and Diving Performer of the Week.
Amstutz swept the one and three-meter diving competitions in UVa's 126-101 win over Duke on Saturday (November 2) and set the UVa Aquatic and Fitness Center pool and school record on the one-meter board. It marks the second consecutive week a Cavalier has earned the ACC's weekly award as first-year Fran Crippen garnered the honor last week.
Amstutz set the six-dive one-meter school and pool record in winning that competition with a score of 326.78 points. The previous school record was 315.95 by Derek Husmann in 1993. South Carolina's Andy Bradley set the pool record on the one-meter board (315.53) last week (October 26), only to have Amstutz break the record a week later.
With his performance on the one-meter board, Amstutz qualified for the NCAA Zone B Diving Regionals, which will be held March 14-16 at the University of Auburn. Amstutz was also victorious in the three-meter diving competition against Duke with a season-best score of 285.68 points.
