WESTWOOD, Mass.—Babson College first-year Angela Li (Belmont, Mass.) was selected as the New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) women's Swimmer of the Week on Monday afternoon.
Li put together a terrific collegiate debut with victories in all three of the events she competed in. She came in first in the 200-yard individual medley (2:19.65) and 100-yard breaststroke (1:12.76). Li also helped Babson record a first-place finish in the 200 medley relay as the Beavers won 10 of 11 swimming events in a season-opening 133-66 win at UMass Dartmouth.
Babson (1-0) returns to action on Friday when it travels to WPI to face Brandeis, Simmons, Smith and the host Engineers at 6:30 p.m.
