11/4/2013 — PITTSBURGH, Pa. - Penn State Altoona sophomore Benjamin Porter (West Chester, PA/Unionville) was named the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference's Men's Swimmer of the Week on Monday.
Porter had a strong showing in Saturday's dual meet at AMCC opponent Pitt-Bradford, recording two first place finishes to help his team tie the Panthers 102-102.
Porter took first place in the 400 Yard IM with a time of 4:44.77. Later in the meet, he secured another first place finish when he won the 200 Yard Backstroke in 2:14.02.
The recognition marks the second time that Porter has received the AMCC Men's Swimmer of the Week nod in his two years with Penn State Altoona swimming.
