ANNAPOLIS, Md. -- Women's swimmer Laura Gorinski (Sr., Greensburg, Pa.) has been selected as the Navy Athlete of the Week, Presented by Rolls Royce, for the week ending Feb. 24, 2013.
Gorinski totaled five victories during the Patriot League Championship held this weekend in Lewisburg, Pa. She won the 200 individual medley and both breaststroke events, while also swimming the breaststroke leg on Navy's victorious 200 and 400 medley relay teams.
Those efforts helped Navy win the program's second-consecutive Patriot League title -- the first back-to-back crowns for the Mids since winning six in a row from 1992-97 -- and a league-best 12th championship. Gorinski also was tabbed as the Patriot League Swimmer of the Year for a second-consecutive season. She ended her career breaking Patriot League -- male and female -- records with 11 individual event victories (in 12 career races) and 20 combined individual and relay event championships.
