The weekly honor was the first for an Eastern swimmer this year and the second in the three-year career of Schapp, who was selected Rookie-of-the-Week on January 16, 2011.

The program record-holder in all three backstroke events, Schapp won the 50 yard backstroke Saturday in a time of 29.31 and the 100 backstroke in a time of 1:04.61. She also swam the first leg of the winning 200 medley relay (1:57.47) and the second leg of the winning 200 freestyle relay (1:48.19).

Eastern dominated the six-team non-scoring meet at UMass Dartmouth, winning nine individual events and both relays.

Schapp has been named All-LEC twice in her career, with the 200 medley relay last year and 400 freestyle relay as a freshman. She is a nine-time All-New England performer in individual and relay events.

Eastern opens its home season Saturday at 11 a.m. against the University of Saint Joseph (CT).
