Molloy Rider Athlete of the Month

During World War II, Kilroy had his name written on walls all over Europe. 

Looking at the walls in Rider University's Coppola Pool, it will be obvious for years to come that Molloy was Here.

Brian Molloy, a senior from Toms River, NJ (Toms River East), is getting his name etched into the Rider swimming annals on a weekly basis, and was recently named the Rider Athlete of the Month for November.

In a win over Seton Hall, Molloy broke the oldest record in the Coppola Pool, the 100 free (46.58), a record that stood since 1987.

Twice the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Swimmer of the Week this season, Molloy now ranks among Rider's top five fastest times in five different events.

"Brian is very disciplined in training and is an intelligent racer," said head coach Steve Fletcher.  "His performances the first semester are a strong indicator of the competitive mark he will leave on our program as a senior."

A Mathematics major and a member of the MAAC All-Academic team, Molloy helped Rider defeat Seton Hall, La Salle and Marist this season.

Against Marist Molloy won four events and he won three events against La Salle.

Molloy, who qualified for the prestigious Speedo Grand Prix meet in three events, picked up his first MAAC gold last year on the 200 free relay and is currently the top ranked swimmer in the MAAC in four individual events and four relays.

Following the 2013 MAAC Championships, it will be obvious in Rider's Coppola Pool that Molloy was Here.
