Plymouth State Women receive Little East honors

            PLYMOUTH, N.H. - A pair of Plymouth State University sophomores were honored by the Little East Conference on Monday for their performances in several Panther victories last week.

            Sophomore Nora Regan (West Hartford, Conn./Northwest Catholic) was named LEC Diver of the Week, and classmate Alicia Doucet (Manchester, N.H./Central) was selected to the LEC Women's Basketball Weekly Honor Roll.  It is the first time in her career that Regan has been honored by the Little East, while Doucet has been recognized several times, including once last month.

Nora Regan             Regan (right) swept the two diving events last Saturday to help Plymouth State to a 141-117 victory over Bridgewater State.  She placed first in one-meter event with a score 174.50 and came back to capture the win on the three-meter board and a career-best 189.75.

            Regan has helped PSU to a 4-1 record in dual meets this season, with victories in nine of their last 10 duals dating back to last season.  The Panthers will be home this Wednesday for a dual meet against Western Connecticut State University (1:00 p.m.)

Alicia Doucet             Doucet (left) averaged 15.0 points and 8.3 rebounds in three games last week, leading PSU to a 3-0 week.  She averaged 19.0 points and 9.0 boards in PSU's two LEC wins over UMass Boston and Rhode Island College, finishing with 18 points and nine rebounds against UMB and 20 points and nine boards in the triumph over RIC.  Doucet shot 47 percent from the field (16-of-34) for the week while collecting six assists, two blocked shots and a steal.

            PSU, 13-3 overall and 3-2 in conference games, plays a pair of LEC road contests this week, traveling to the University of Southern Maine on Tuesday (5:30 p.m.) and UMass Dartmouth on Saturday (1:00 p.m.)
