Crowley Receives Second Straight NEC Award

Central Connecticut senior Erin Crowley received her second straight Northeast Conference Swimmer of the Week honor for her performance at the USA Swimming Short Course Nationals this weekend. The Plainville, CT native competed against the best in the country and posted times better than any other NEC swimmer.

Crowley recorded a time of 24.45 in the 50 freestyle, which would have been good for tops in the conference if she did not swim to a 24.33 finish earlier this season. She also posted a near NEC best time in the 100 free, touching in at 52.98 at the national event. Her conference best time of 52.10 still stands to be beaten.

The Central swimming and diving team will continue their season after the mid-season break when they travel to Worcester, MA to compete against Holy Cross and Vermont. The meet is scheduled for Sunday January 11 at 1:00 p.m.
