Cecilia Rius Earns LEC Diving Honors

Feb. 8, 2010

NORTH DARTMOUTH, MA-For the third time this season, freshman diver Cecilia 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 won both of her events against Colby-Sawyer last week, taking the one-meter diving competition with 190.20 points, and the three meter diving with 159.320.

"Cecilia continues to prove that she is a big asset as a freshman diver," said UMass Dartmouth Diving Coach Danielle Morley. "She finished out the season strong this past weekend diving against Colby-Sawyer. Her hard work has earned her a qualifying spot in the one-meter diving event at the New England Swimming and Diving Championships to be held at Bentley this weekend."

The Corsairs will return to action when they visit the New England Division II and III Diving Championships this weekend.
