CINCINNATI - Xavier men's swimmer Sam Conchuratt has been named the Atlantic 10 Men's Swimming Performer of the Week for the week of Jan. 15. Conchuratt had a sensational weekend in a pair of meets at IUPUI and Cleveland State.

Conchuratt garnered Men's Performer of the Week after competing in the two meets that took place within 24 hours of each other this past weekend, winning three individual races and one relay event. The Tualatin, Ore., native picked up wins in both the 100 and 200-yard butterfly against IUPUI and Ball State on Friday. He also helped the 200 freestyle relay team to a first-place finish. Conchuratt added his third individual victory in the 200 individual medley against Cleveland State and Oakland on Saturday.

This is the third award for a Musketeer swimmer this season and second for Conchuratt, who was named Performer of the Week on Dec. 4 after swimming in the AT&T Winter Nationals. Freshman swimmer Mackenna Rife was tabbed the Women's Rookie of the Week on Oct. 23.
