(Plainswell), had a busy and successful weekend at the Great Scot Invitational hosted by Macalester College. He was in on five event victories over the two-day meet, including first-place finishes in the 50-yard freestyle (22.22) and 100 freestyle (49.28). He also swam legs on the first-place 200 and 400 freestyle relays (1:30.27 and 3:18.27, respectively), as well as the winning 400 medley relay (3:45.31). Fulgoni also swam on the runner-up 200 medley relay team (1:42.47), third-place 800 freestyle relay squad (7:47.67) and took fourth in the 200 freestyle (1:54.97). The times in the 50 freestyle, 200 freestyle relay and 400 freestyle relay are all tops in the MWC this season. Josh Dunn of Monmouth College was co-winner of the award with Fulgoni. The Female Performer of the Week is Lake Forest College's Becky Shaak.
