PSU Swimmer receives Little East Conference weekly honor

DeGrazia 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 Deanne DeGrazia (Westport, Mass./Bishop Stang) was selected as the LEC Rookie Swimmer of the Week for her performance in a meet last Saturday. She helped the Panthers post a Little East victory over Rhode Island College.

            A rookie freestyler for the Panthers, DeGrazia won three individual events on the evening and swam on a winning relay team. She took first place in the 200-yard freestyle in a time of 2:08.45, the 50-yard free in 28.51 seconds, and the 50-yard butterfly in 31.87 seconds, all season-best times. DeGrazia also swam the anchor leg on the winning 200-yard free relay squad.

            Plymouth State, 4-1 in dual meets, wraps up the semester this Saturday with a 1:00 p.m. at Westfield State University.
