Kellie Pennington
Kellie Pennington has been selected as the Springfield College Female Maroon Club Athlete of the Week after a career weekend at the New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) Swimming & Diving Championship.

The Monson, Mass. native was named the NEWMAC Women's Swimmer of the Year for the fourth-straight year, becoming the first swimmer in the history of the NEWMAC to win the conference's Swimmer of the Year award all four years of their career. On the women's side, this marks the ninth time in the past 12 years that a Springfield College swimmer has been tabbed the best in the league.

Pennington was sensational in the four-day conference championship, winning three individual events and three relays while breaking four school records and two conference records.

Individually, she won the 50 free (23.11), the 100 free (50.18) and the 200 free, breaking her school record and the conference record with a winning time of 1:50.02.

The senior also swam on three winning relay teams. The 400 free relay team posted a winning time of 3:28.30, a new school record. The 400 medley relay team won with a school record time of 3:49.33 while the 800 free relay team set a school and conference record with a winning time of 7:34.02.

As a team, the Pride finished in second for the fourth-straight year as Springfield totaled 1209.5 points.
