Babson College senior Kevin Luu (Malden, Mass.) was selected as the department's Student-Athlete of the Week on Friday. Luu, who competes primarily in the backstroke and freestyle events, recorded five victories and 12 top-three finishes in dual-meet action in addition to helping the Beavers set a new program record with a time of 3:25:17 in the 400-yard medley relay at the NEWMAC Championships last February.
A two-time academic all-conference honoree, Luu recorded the top times of his career in two of three individual events at last year's league meet. He placed fourth in the B final of 100-yard backstroke, was eighth with a time of 2:00.77 in the 200 back, and recorded his top time of 22.17 in the prelims of the 50-yard freestyle.
In order to be eligible for the award, a student-athlete must be either a junior or senior and carry a minimum cumulative grade-point average of 3.30.
