COLLEGE PARK, MD, February 7. MARYLAND reports its senior woman Elizabeth Lavell (Annapolis, Md.) was named ACC Swimmer of the Week this week for her performance in the Terps' 119.5-117.5 victory over Virginia Saturday.

Lavell won two individual events at the Aquatic and Fitness Center in Charlottesville, Va., including an NCAA `B' cut time of 4:53.00 in the 500-yard freestyle. She also recorded her fastest time of the season in the 1,000-free, winning the event in 9:55.19.
