Peter Nachtwey was honored as A-10 Rookie of the Week for a second time following his record-setting 3-meter diving performance in the win, while Emily Zhang took CollegeSwimming.com A-10 Women’s Swimmer of the Week honors after winning five individual races against Boston College and Marshall that weekend.
SCOUTING DAVIDSON: Davidson is coming off a home split against Georgetown last Saturday. The men won, 176-123, with the women falling 172-120.
