Lonkert Honored by the MAAC

EDISON—Freshman diver Heather Lonkert of the Rider University women’s swimming and diving team was recognized by the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference for all competition October 14-20, it was announced Wednesday afternoon.

Lonkert was named the MAAC Female Diver of the Week for the second time this season.

A 5-2 freshman from Moon Township, Pennsylvania (Moon Area High School), Lonkert won the one-meter dive (250.50) and was second on the three-meter board (264.80) in Rider’s dual meet at Seton Hall on October 17.

“Heather dove amazing against a quality Seton Hall team,” said diving coach Eric Blevins.  “She is adapting well to her training and improving each week.”

Lonkert made a splash in her collegiate debut, winning the three-meter (237.97) and also winning the one-meter with a score of 255.82 as Rider opened the 2013-14 season against Maryland Baltimore County on October 12, earning conference honors the opening week of competition.

“Having the MAAC recognize Heather again for her efforts is incredible,” Blevins added.

Rider hosts Lehigh on Saturday at Coppola Pool in the Maurer Center at 1 p.m.
