PSU Diver earns Little East honors

Allaire tabbed as Diver of the Week

            PLYMOUTH, N.H. – The top diver for the Plymouth State University women's swimming and diving team was honored by the Little East Conference (LEC) following an impressive season-opening performance.

            Junior Casey Allaire (Mattapoisett, Mass.) was chosen as the LEC Diver of the Week after capturing a pair of titles at the Louise Goodrum Invitational at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth on Saturday.

            The defending LEC Diver of the Year, Allaire kicked off the 2018-19 season in style. She scored 235.80 on the one-meter board, eclipsing her closest competition by nearly 70 points, then won the three-meter diving with a score of 209.35.

            Allaire has won 31 of the 36 diving events she's entered over her career and owns four school records; 1-meter (six dives), 1-meter (11 dives), 3-meter (six dives) and 3-meter (11 dives).

            The Panthers open the home schedule with a dual meet against Colby-Sawyer College on Friday (Nov. 9) as part of Salute the Troops weekend. The first event is scheduled for 4:00 p.m. at the PSU Natatorium.
