Brittany Haskell Of FIU Earned C-USA Diver Of The Week

After capping off an impressive team win in the UC-San Diego Invitational last week, Rice’s Alicia Caldwell is the C-USA Swimmer of the Week. Caldwell won two individual events while also swimming the lead leg in two of Rice’s winning relays. For the first time this season, FIU’s Brittany Haskell takes home C-USA Diver of the Week honors. Haskell posted a career-best mark in the 1-meter event and helped lead the Panthers to a dominant win in the FIU Sprint Invitational.

Caldwell paced the Owls (673.5 points) in their win over San Diego State (673.5 points), UC-San Diego (565 points) and San Jose State (526 points). The junior won the 100-backstroke with a time of 56.83, claiming first ahead of 17 other competitors, followed by an impressive time of 52.21 and a first-place finish in the 100-freestyle. Caldwell also contributed to Rice’s relay success and swam the lead leg on both of the team’s winning 200-medley (1:44.98) and 400-free (3:30.20) relays. This marks Caldwell’s third career weekly award and her second of the 2016-17 campaign.
