LYNCHBURG, Va. – Following a strong performance in Wilmington, N.C., on Saturday, Liberty sophomore Abigail Egolf-Jensen has been named the Coastal Collegiate Sports Association (CCSA) Women’s Diver of the Week.

Egolf-Jensen receives CCSA Diver of the Week honors for the first time in her career. She is the third active Lady Flame to earn Diver of the Week, joining classmates Lauren Chennault (Nov. 13, 2018 and Feb. 5, 2019) and Olivia Robinson (Oct. 31, 2018 and Feb. 5, 2019). A total of seven Liberty divers have combined for 11 CCSA Diver of the Week honors since 2015.

A native of Blaine, Minn., Egolf-Jensen led Liberty’s divers, as they competed separately from the swimmers on the weekend. Competing in a meet at UNCW against divers from Old Dominion and UNCW, Egolf-Jensen took second place in both one-meter (234.35) and three-meters (241.30) diving.  She earned her best placings of the early season while in Wilmington on Saturday.

The Lady Flames (3-1, 1-0 CCSA) will contest their first regular-season home meet of the season, hosting UNC Asheville at the Liberty Natatorium Oct. 25-26.
