Mike Shaw Named ECAC Diver of the Week for Fifth Time This Season

SPRINGFIELD, Mass., February 9, 2006 - Springfield College senior All-American Mike Shaw (Westfield, Mass.) has been honored by the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) as the Division III Men’s Diver of the Week, in an announcement made late Tuesday afternoon, February 7.

Shaw, a graduate of Westfield High School, has taken this ECAC weekly honor home an amazing five times this season, as Shaw has been named the ECAC Diver of the Week two-straight weeks and four of the past five. The senior All-American garnered this award for the weeks of December 12, January 9, January 16, January 30, and now February 6.

Shaw finished first on both the one- and three-meter boards this past Saturday afternoon (Feb. 4) in a close dual-meet at Amherst College. Shaw’s 294.53 points in the one-meter diving competition was good for a new pool record at Amherst, as the senior scored 270.90 points in the three-meter dive to capture first. In every meet this season, Shaw has yet to lose on either the one- or three-meter board, as the All-American is yet again compiling a truly dominant final campaign.

With one dual-meet remaining in the 2005-’06 season, the Pride is 6-6 overall on the year. SC will travel to Babson Park, Mass., for its dual-meet finale on Saturday afternoon, February 11, in a 1:00 p.m. start.
