William & Mary senior Jeremiah O'Donnell (Chapel Hill, N.C.) was named the Colonial Athletic Association's Men's Swimmer of the Week on Tuesday, after leading the Tribe to a season-opening win against Towson on Saturday.  This is the first award of the season for W&M, and the second of O'Donnell's career.

O'Donnell, the defending CAA Swimmer of the Year, showed no drop-off as he began the year with a perfect 4-0 record, two dual-meet records, and a lifetime-best against the Tigers.  He began the meet on the 200 medley relay that won in an in-season best time of 1:30.88, which was also the sixth-fastest race in school history.  O'Donnell teamed with classmates Will Manion (Haddonfield, N.J.) and Justin Barden (Gordonsville, Va.) as well as junior Joe Eiden (White Plains, N.Y.) on the relay.  He then jumped in the pool for three individual wins, starting with the 100 breast.  His time of 55.79 was not just a lifetime-best for the senior, but was also the 15th-fastest single race ever at W&M and ranks him fifth all-time among Tribe athletes.  O'Donnell then won the 200 breast in 2:03.54 to break his own dual-meet record, and finished the day with a 1:52.99 win in the 200 IM.

William & Mary has this weekend off, but will return to action next Friday, Oct. 23, hosting Georgetown at 5 p.m.
