PAWTUCKET, R.I. – University of Massachusetts Dartmouth freshman Michaela Lacroix (North Kingstown, R.I.) earned the first Little East Conference accolade of her career on Monday, sweeping the Diver of the Week honors following her performance on Saturday.
In the Corsairs’ dual meet with Babson, Lacroix posted a score of 196.15 in the 1-meter diving event, hitting the first of two necessary qualifying scores in order to compete in February’s 2018 New England Intercollegiate Swimming & Diving Association Championships. She collected an additional nine point for UMass Dartmouth on the meet in the 3-meter version, scoring in at 124.50. The Corsair women went on to defeat the Beavers as a unit by over 20 points, 137-112.
UMass Dartmouth is in the pool for competition twice this week, beginning with a Wednesday night dual meet at Bridgewater State before hosting the 2017 Louise Goodrum Invitational at the Tripp Athletic Center on Saturday beginning at noon.
