Nov. 22, 2010

NORTH DARTMOUTH, MA-Freshman Chelsea Hopkins-Pottle (Brockton, MA/Brockton HS) of the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth's swimming team has been honored by the Little East Conference.

Hopkins-Pottle has been named LEC Rookie Diver of the Week.

In a dual meet at Bentley Saturday, Hopkins-Pottle qualified for the New England Championships when she finished fourth in one meter diving with a score of 177.00.

"Chelsea is a great addition to our team," said UMass Dartmouth Diving Coach Danielle Morley. "As a freshman diver she shows great promise. She dove exceptionally well at Bentley this weekend, achieving her first qualifying score for the New England Championships in February. We can expect to see great things from Chelsea this season."

The Corsairs will return to action when the men visit the Eastern College Athletic Conference Championships, and the women host the Little East Conference championships on the weekend of December 4th.
