PSU Diver honored by Little East Conference

Allaire named Diver of the Week 

            PLYMOUTH, N.H. – Sophomore Casey Allaire (Mattapoisett, Mass.) was named the Little East Conference Diver of the Week after her performance at the Louise Goodrum Invitational hosted by the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth on Saturday.

            Allaire picked up right where she left off last winter when she won the 1-meter and 3-meter diving titles at the New England Intercollegiate Swimming & Diving Association (NEISDA) Championships.

            Allaire earned impressive first place finishes in both events on Saturday. Her score of 225.25 in the 1-meter dive was 46.5 points better than her closest competition, but her margin of victory in the 3-meter dive was even more impressive. The sophomore posted a score of 214.60, with the second place finisher nearly 70 points behind with a 146.65 result.

            Though the event did not have team scoring, PSU had a number of positive performances in preparation for the first dual meet on the schedule. The Panthers will travel to Colby-Sawyer College for its first scored competition on Friday (Nov. 10), with the first event set for 4:00 p.m. PSU opens its home schedule the following Saturday (Nov. 18), when the Panthers welcome Eastern Connecticut State and Western New England for a 1:00 p.m. tri-meet.
