Garvey, Corcoran Earn Little East Conference Honors

NORTH DARTMOUTH, MA-Two members of the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth's swimming team have earned Little East Conference honors.

 

Freshman Caroline Corcoran (West Boylston, MA/ West Boylston) was named LEC Rookie Swimmer of the Week, while sophomore Brooke Garvey (North Billerica, MA/Billerica HS) was named LEC Diver of the Week. It's the second consecutive week in which Garvey has been honored.

 

Corcoran won three races last week for UMass Dartmouth. She won the 200-yard individual medley (2:22.39) and the 100-yard butterfly (1:03.62) against Bridgewater State last Tuesday night, then won the 50-yard butterfly (28.45 seconds) and placed third in the 200-yard freestyle (2:06.23) at Saturday's Louise Goodrum Invitational.

 

Garvey won the one meter diving competition (160.72 points) and placed second in the three-meter competition (149.45 points) against Bridgewater State last Tuesday evening.

 

"Caroline has been an asset to our program this season," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Cathy Motta. "The versatility that she has allows me to put her in almost any event and compete. Caroline works hard at every practice, and is a great supporter of her teammates."

 

"Brooke had another great week diving," said UMass Dartmouth Diving Coach Danielle Morley. "She continues to excel, and is proving to be a strong competitor this season. I am very happy to have her as a part of this team. "


The Corsairs will return to action Saturday at Bentley.
