Madison Vestergaard Named Northeast Conference Diver of the Week

Central Connecticut junior Madison Vestergaard earned her seventh Northeast Conference Diver of the Week Award for her performances last weekend. Vestergaard won both diving events on Saturday as the Blue Devils defeated Wagner, 190-101.

Vestergaard finished first in both events posting a score of 242.39 in the one-meter board and a score of 220.12 in the three-meter. Vestergaard posted huge margins of victory in both the events, winning the one-meter by 46 points and the three-meter by 27 points.

This is Vestergaard's seventh NEC weekly award this season. She had a streak of six consecutive awards between Oct. 26, and Jan. 18. It is the eighth NEC Diver of the Week Award this season for the Blue Devils.

Next up for the Blue Devils is the Northeast Conference Championships on Feb. 17-19, at M.I.T.
