Louisville Sweeps ACC Swimmer of the Week Honors

Louisville swept the ACC swimmer of the week honors, announced Tuesday, with Gabi Albiero named the women’s swimmer of the week and Abdelrahman El-Araby winning for the men.

North Carolina’s Aranza Vazquez and Miami’s Max Flory took home the diver of the week honors.

El-Araby, a junior from Egypt, won the 100 freestyle in 42.85 seconds to take home a gold medal at the Purdue Invitational. He also finished second in the 100 butterfly in 47.42 seconds. The sprinter was part of four winning relays on the weekend in West Lafayette, including the third-fastest 200 medley relay in the nation, the fourth-fastest 400 free relay (tied with NC State) and fifth-fastest 800 free relay.

Albiero, another junior, helped the Cardinals win the team competition at Purdue. She won the 100 free in 47.49, the seventh-fastest time in the country this year, and claimed the 100 butterfly in 51.81. She was also third in the 50 free. Albiero took part in all five winning relays, including the third-fastest 200 medley relay in the nation.

Flory picked up three zone scores at the Ohio State Invitational. The junior won the 3-meter event by scoring 425.70 points. He secured silver in the 1-meter competition and bronze in platform, with a score of 408.45 in the latter.
