CENTER VALLEY, Pa. - Loyola University Maryland senior Elle Mixa has been named the Patriot League Female Diver of the Week and classmate Michael Brown has been included among the league's honorable mention performances, as announced by the conference office Tuesday.
At Lehigh on Saturday, Mixa broke the school record in 1-meter diving and became the first-ever Greyhound to qualify for the Zone Championships at the NCAA Division I level and in head coach Brian Loeffler's 21-year tenure. Her winning mark of 266.92 replaces Megan Sterback's previous school record of 255.23, set in 2006, atop the program's record board.
Mixa also won the 3-meter competition, posting a winning score of 243.23, to sweep the boards for a fourth time this season.
The St. Petersburg Beach, Fla., native has been tabbed the league's female diver of the week four times this season.
Brown, from Timonium, Md., was included among the honorable mention performances after sweeping the men's diving competition at Lehigh. Brown won the 1-meter boards with a score of 282.97 and 3-meter diving with a score of 267.08.
The Greyhounds will be back in action this weekend when they host La Salle on Saturday. Events are set to begin at 1 p.m.
