Dec. 14, 2009

NORTH DARTMOUTH, MA-Freshman diver Cecelia Rius (Rockville, MD/Richard Montgomery HS) of the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth's swimming and diving team has been honored by the Little East Conference.

Rius has been named LEC Diver of the Week.

Rius swept the diving events at last Saturday's meet against Elms, winning the one-meter competition with 171.50 points, and taking the three-meter diving with 168.15 points.

"Cecelia is a talented diver who puts forth 100 per cent effort at practices and competitions," said UMass Dartmouth Diving Coach Danielle Motley. "She is a freshman who shows a lot of promise, and will be fun to watch grow and improve as a diver over the next four years. Cecelia is a great athlete and team player. We are happy to have her as part of our team."

The Corsairs will take time off for the holidays, and return to action when they visit Simmons January 20th.
