Louisville senior Joao De Lucca was named American Athletic Conference Swimmer of the Week for the second consecutive week as the third American Athletic.

De Lucca, coming off not just a conference weekly recognition but a national Division 1 Men's Swimmer of the Week honor, continued his outstanding collegiate career with a strong performance in a dual meet against North Carolina. De Lucca took two first place finishes and two second places, winning individually in the 200-yard freestyle and as part of the 200-yard freestyle relay team. The junior's time of 1:36.58 in the 200-yard freestyle is the third-fastest time in the nation this year. He touched the wall in the 100-yard freestyle in 43.91 seconds, the second fastest time in the nation this season, taking second place behind teammate Caryle Blondell.
