Bucknell's Katie Hetherington Named Patriot League Female Diver of the Week
Oct. 8, 2012
LEWISBURG, Pa. - Bucknell sophomore Katie Hetherington (Houston, Texas/Duchesne Academy of the Sacred Heart) was named the Patriot League Female Diver of the Week on Monday following a pair of first-place finishes in the Bison's season-opening unscored meet at UMBC. It is the fifth time Hetherington has been honored with the award in her short career.
A Second Team All-Patriot League selection in 2012, Hetherington won the one-meter board vs. the Retrievers with a score of 227.03, while she captured the three-meter diving competition with a tally of 231.45. It marked her fifth career sweep of both boards in a dual meet.
Bucknell's season-opening meet with UMBC took place Sept. 29, but the first set of Patriot League weekly awards for the 2012-13 season counted competitions from each of the last two weeks.
Hetherington enters her sophomore campaign coming off an outstanding freshman season that saw her finish second (three-meter) and third (one-meter) at last year's Patriot League Championships. She also competed at the NCAA Zone Diving Meet and was a member of the Patriot League Academic Honor Roll.
Hetherington and her Bison teammates will be back in action Oct. 20 when they face Fordham and host UConn in a double dual meet in Storrs, Conn.
