NORTH DARTMOUTH, MA- Junior Morgan Cooper(Sunderland, MA/Frontier Regional HS) of the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth's swimming team has been honored by the Little East Conference.

For the second time this season, Cooper has been named Little East Conference Swimmer of the Week.

Cooper won two events Saturday against Elms, finishing first in both the 100 yard freestyle in 57.72 seconds and the 200 yard freestyle in 2:03.83.

"Morgan Cooper is well deserving of this recognition," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Cathy Motta. "She is a great captain and team leader, both in the pool and in the classroom. Morgan leads by example and it's great to see that her hard work is paying off. Her times this season have already met or surpassed the times she swam at the championships last year, and we are expecting great things from her."

The Corsairs will break for the holidays and return to action at Simmons January 17th.
