Little East Conference honor for PSU women’s swimmer

Brodeur leads Panthers in season-opening meets 

            PLYMOUTH, N.H. – One of the top student-athletes on the Plymouth State University women’s swimming and diving team was honored by the Little East Conference (LEC) Monday for her efforts in PSU’s opening meets of the season.

            Junior Nicole Brodeur (Claremont, N.H./Vermont Academy) was named Little East Conference Swimmer of the Week.  She has had numerous first-place finishes as PSU won its first two dual meets over Regis College and Colby-Sawyer College and she posted the top swims for the Panthers at the Regis College Invitational.

             The current school record-holder in the 500-yard freestyle and the 100-yard butterfly, Brodeur (right) captured five individual victories and two relay triumphs in PSU’s victories over Regis and Colby-Sawyer.  She won the 50 freestyle (27.42 seconds) and 50 butterfly (30.01) in the win over Regis on Nov. 5, and she captured the 100 free (59.58 seconds), the 50 fly (30.19), and the 100 fly (1:06.59) in PSU’s win over Colby-Sawyer on Nov. 21.  She swam a leg on PSU’s winning 400-free relay team in both meets.  Brodeur also posted PSU’s top finishes at the Regis Invitational on Nov. 13, taking second place in the 100-butterfly (1:06.20) and the 100 free (58.43) and third in the 50 fly (29.69).

            The Panthers, 2-0, are off until competing in the Little East Conference Championships on Saturday, Dec. 4, at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth.
