Curry Named SEC Male Freshman of the Week

BATON ROUGE – LSU swimmer Brooks Curry has been named SEC Male Freshman of the Week, announced by the conference office on Tuesday.

This is the first time this season that Curry has been named Freshman of the Week by the SEC and it comes after a dominating three-day stretch that featured three individual wins and two relay wins. On Thursday, January 9 against No. 7 Missouri, Curry won both the 100 and 200-Yard Free with times of 43.96 and 1:36.93. It was the second time that the Atlanta native won both freestyle events as he did so at the SMU Invitational in November. Curry also swam the second leg of the winning 200-Yard Freestyle Relay against Mizzou in route to a time of 1:19.22.

Just two days later against Delta State, Curry won the 100-Yard Back for the first time in his young career. He touched the wall in 48.66 to take the top spot. To close out the meet, Curry swam the first leg for the 400-Yard Freestyle Relay team that touched the all first with a time of 3:02.15.

“This is a tremendous recognition for Brooks,”  said LSU head swim coach Dave Geyer. “He is having a stellar freshman campaign and has been a huge contributor in our dual meets.”

Curry and the Tigers will be back at home this weekend as they host Florida State on Friday, January 17 at 5 p.m. CT and Texas A&M on Saturday, January 18 at 11 a.m. CT for Senior Day.
