Cecilia Rius Earns Little East Conference Honors

Feb. 1, 2011

NORTH DARTMOUTH, MA-Sophomore Cecilia Rius (Rockville, MD/Richard Montgomery HS) of the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth's women's swimming team has been honored by the Little East Conference.

Rius has been named LEC Diver of the Week.

Rius was honored for her performance last Saturday, when the Corsairs defeated Plymouth State, 151-131. She finished first in both the one meter diving (190.45 points), and the three meter diving (163.80 points).

"Cecilia has really stepped it up this year," said UMass Dartmouth Diving Coach Danielle Morley. "She had a great performance this past weekend against Plymouth State. Her hard work and dedication has earned her a spot on both the one and three meter boards at the New England Swimming and Diving Championships in two weeks. Cecilia has a good shot of placing on both boards at the championships this year"

The Corsairs will return to action when they visit Colby-Sawyer Saturday.
