Freshman Hailey Beers was named the MAAC Diver of the week for the first time in her young career.  The award is the first for the Saints this season and the first Diver of the Week accolade for the Green and Gold since 2010.

Beers helped the Saints to a sweep of Holy Cross in their last meet by sweeping both diving events.  It was the first full sweep for Siena since 2008.  She did not attempt a dive less than a degree of difficulty under 2.0.  In the one meter- Beers scored a 211.55 and averaging a D.D of 2.16.  Her best event came on the three meter board where she had a season best score of 246.  In this event the degree of difficulty spanned from 2.1-2.4 and she won by over 100 points.

The Saints will take to the pool on Saturday at Siena Swim Center as the team welcomes Vermont.  The meet is scheduled for a 2:00 p.m. start.
