Crowley and Miller Receive NEC Weekly Honors

Senior Erin Crowley and freshman Mallory Miller become the fourth swimmer and third diver, respectively, to receive Northeast Conference weekly honors for Central Connecticut this season. Both athletes receive the accolades for the first time in their respective careers. Crowley won the 500 freestyle, while swimming well in three other events this weekend at the Terrier Invitational. Miller set a personal record for the three-meter dive, posting a score 203 during the meet at Boston University.

Crowley touched in at 4:56.69 to take first in the 500 free final, but recorded a time of 4:56.53 in the prelim. This gave her a time over four seconds better than any other in the conference. She also placed conference best times in the 50, 100 and 200 freestyle events. Crowley finished fourth in the 200 free, recording a prelim time of 1:52.47 before touching in at 1:53.83 in the finals. The Plainville, CT native also took seventh in the 50 free in a time of 24.41 (24.33 prelim time) and swam to a 52.80 in the 100 free for another conference best time.

Miller bested her top performance in the three-meter dive event by over 25 points to score a 203 at the Terrier Invitational at Boston University this weekend. She now has the best three-meter score in the conference with her performance this weekend.

The meet at BU wrapped up the Blue Devils team competition for 2008. Crowley will be competing at the USA Swimming Short Course Nationals on December 4-7 in Atlanta, GA. CCSU will return to team action on Sunday January 11 when they take on Vermont and Holy Cross in Worcester, MA.
