Allaire named Diver of the Week
PLYMOUTH, N.H. – Just two days after earning a pair of Little East Conference (LEC) titles, the top diver for the Plymouth State University women's swimming & diving team has been honored by the league as the Diver of the Week.
Senior Casey Allaire (Mattapoisett, Mass.) earned the recognition after an impressive performance to highlight the LEC Championships at the Tripp Athletic Center at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth on Saturday.
Allaire defended her title on the 1-meter board with a score of 200.35, then capped her day with the 3-meter crown after totaling a 212.65. She has dominated the LEC competition since her rookie campaign, claiming two LEC titles at each height to go with Rookie Diver of the Year honors as a freshman followed by three consecutive Diver of the Year honors.
PSU finished fourth at the championships, the team's highest finish since the 2006-07 season. The Panthers wrap up the season at the New England Intercollegiate Swimming & Diving Association (NEISDA) Championships from Feb. 13 – 16 at the University of Rhode Island.
