Matt Shriner

Westwood, MA --- WPI freshman Matt Shriner (Arlington, MA) has been selected as the NEWMAC Men's Swimmer of the Week.

Shriner captured the 200-yard butterfly and both distance freestyle events as WPI knocked off RPI 171-129 Saturday, ending the visiting Engineers 19 dual meet winning-streak that dates back to 2015. The rookie won the 200 fly (1:59.36) for the second time in less than 24 hours and touched the wall first in the 1,000-yard (10:05.75) and 500-yard freestyle (4:54.53). He clocked a 1:59.91 to take Friday's 200 fly in a meet that saw WPI sweep Babson and Brandeis.

Swimming & Diving is on the road this weekend with a trip to Southern Connecticut State University Saturday and Coast Guard on Sunday.
