BATON ROUGE -- For the third time this season, Kara Kopcso has been named the Southeastern Conference Female Freshman of the Week.
“She had a solid showing at Houston and it's great for the conference to recognize her for the third time,” LSU swimming coach Dave Geyer said. “We hope she can continue her successful first year throughout the championship season.”
Kopcso posted three individual wins on the weekend to improve her season total to 11. The Mandeville, La. native highlighted the weekend with victories in the 200 freestyle (1:49.01), 200 IM (2:00.38) and 400 IM (4:23.51). The freshman’s times in the 200 freestyle and 200 IM were career bests.
