Feb. 1, 2010

NORTH DARTMOUTH, MA-For the second 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.

Once again, Rius has been named LEC Diver of the Week.

Rius won three events last week, taking the one-meter diving competition against WPI Thursday night with 203.25 points. She won both the one meter diving with 202.10 points and the three meter diving with 169.20 points in Saturday's meet against Plymouth State.

"Cecilia continues to show improvement as her diving scores climb week to week throughout the season," said UMass Dartmouth Diving Coach Danielle Morley. "Not only is she a talented diver, but she is also a big team player. We can expect to see a lot from this freshman over the next four years.

The Corsairs will return to action when they host Colby-Sawyer Saturday.
