Staszewski Named Patriot League Female Diver Of The Week

Loyola University Maryland sophomore Lindsey Staszewski was named Corvias Patriot League Female Diver of the Week on Tuesday after winning both diving events for the second-straight week.

Staszewski helped the Greyhounds win their second Patriot League meet of the young season, scoring 18 points sweeping the 1- and 3-meter contests against Colgate University.

The native of South Bend, Indiana, won the 3-meter event over a six-person field, scoring 251.17 points, bettering the second-place competitor by 56.17 points, an improvement of almost 18 points from last week. Staszewski then won the 1-meter event with 231.89 points, more than 18 points ahead of second place. That score improved her mark from the previous week by over eight points.

The award is the second of Staszewski’s career; she also earned the honor on Oct. 26, 2015.

Loyola men’s and women’s swimming and diving is back in action on Saturday, Oct. 22, when the teams host Lafayette College start at 1 p.m.
