Czaplicki and Vestergaard Receive NEC Honors

Central Connecticut freshmen Alex Czaplicki and Madison Vestergaard were awarded Northeast Conference Swimmer and Diver of the Week honors for their performances at last weekend's meet against Northeastern and Maine. Czaplicki placed second in both the 100 backstroke and the 100 butterfly and was also a member of the first place 400 free relay. Vestergaard took home a sixth in the three-meter dive and was seventh in the one-meter event.

Czaplicki set Northeast Conference bests in the 100 back and 100 fly, touching in at 1:00.95 and 59.89, respectively. Vestergaard scored personal bests in both diving events, recording a 172.00 in the one-meter and a 175.20 in the three-meter.

The Blue Devils are currently gearing up for two home meets this weekend. CCSU will host Southern Connecticut and Springfield on Saturday at 1:00 p.m. and then host Sacred Heart on Sunday at 2:00 p.m.
