PSU Swimmer receives Little East Conference weekly honor

Mazza named LEC Rookie of the Week for Panthers

            PLYMOUTH, N.H. – A freshman on the Plymouth State University women's swimming and diving team was honored Monday with weekly recognition from the Little East Conference.

            Freshman Julia Mazza (Belchertown, Mass.) was selected as the LEC Rookie Swimmer of the Week for her performance in a tri-meet last Saturday. She helped the Panthers post victories over Colby-Sawyer College and Elms College in the first scoring meets of the season.

            A rookie butterflier for the Panthers, Mazza took first place in the 100-yard butterfly with a time of 1:03.48, and she won the 50 fly in 28.74 seconds. She was also third in the 100-yard freestyle in 59.90 seconds, and she swam the butterfly leg on PSU's winning 200-yard medley relay team.

            Plymouth State returns to the pool this Saturday at 1:00 p.m. with another tri-meet at Western New England University with Eastern Connecticut State University.
