A pair of individual victories at American University's recent swimming and diving meet has earned Liam Riebling the vote for the GEICO Student-Athlete of the Week for the period ending Oct. 14.

Riebling, a sophomore from Ridgefield, Conn., won both the 200-yard individual medley (1:58.50) and the 500 freestyle (4:50.96) in a meet last Friday against Howard and Manhattan.

His marks in each event were the best of the season by an AU swimmer, as he became the first Eagle this season to finish under 5:00 in the 500 free.

American's swimming and diving teams are breaking from competition for a couple weeks before returning for a quad meet at Bucknell with Lafayette and Navy on Saturday, Nov. 3.
