Springfield, Mass. - December 13, 2017 - Springfield College's Connor Pennington (Monson, Mass.) of the men's swimming and diving team was recently recognized for his impressive performance this past weekend, as the freshman was named the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Division III North Diver of the Week, announced on Wednesday.
Diving in the same natatorium that will host the 2018 NCAA Division III Diving Regional Championships, Pennington was a bright spot in the Pride's meet against Middlebury this past weekend, as the Computer Graphics major won the three-meter board with a score of 349.65, before taking first on the one-meter board with a score of 329.25. Both of Pennington's scores were nationally-qualifying, as to date, the freshman has posted a national-qualifying score in 13 of his 14 attempts this season.
Pennington, along with the rest of the Pride, will return to action on Saturday, January 7 as Springfield College will make the trip to Babson Park, Mass. for a New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) battle with the Beavers. The meet is set to begin at 1 p.m.
