Pitt-Bradford freshman Elizabeth Prager was named the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference women’s player of the week for swimming, as announced by the league office on Monday.

Prager dashed out to a large lead in the 1000 freestyle on Saturday at the dual meet with Cabrini College hosted at the Paul C. Duke Aquatics Center. Prager went on to finish the race in a time of 11:33.71 that shattered the previous school record of 11:38.54 by nearly five seconds. 

Along with her record-setting performance in the 1000 free, Prager also posted a first place finish in the 100 backstroke. She finished with a final time of 1:05.39, taking the first place spot by nearly two seconds ahead of Cabrini’s Courtney Good.

The Panthers are back in action at the pool this weekend as they host conference-foe Penn State Altoona at 1 p.m.
