PLYMOUTH, N.H. – For the first time, the Little East Conference is honoring the top women’s swimmers and divers with the selection of Swimmer and Diver of the Week, and a Plymouth State College diver is the first to receive the weekly honor.
Panther junior Becky Huntington (Hampstead, N.H.) was named LEC Diver of the Week. She is one of three Panther juniors who have excelled on the diving boards for PSC this season.
Huntington captured first place in both the one- and three-meter diving events last Saturday, helping PSC pull out a 153-140 victory over Bridgewater State College in a dual meet. She scored 208.25 points to win on the low board, and registered a score of 216.50 to take the three-meter event.
Huntington is one of three school-record holders on the Panthers this season, along with classmates Krit Kearins (Andover, Mass.) and Jen Crescenzi (Killingworth, Conn.).
The Panthers, 4-2 in dual meets, return to action this Saturday with a 1 p.m. home meet at the PSC Natatorium against St. Joseph’s (Conn.).
