YORK DISPATCH STAFF REPORT
Dover High School graduate and Indiana University of Pennsylvania sophomore Nicole Smith was named the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference’s Women’s Swimmer of the Week, as chosen by CollegeSwimming.com
It marks the second weekly honor of the season for Smith, who earned the same award in October of 2016.
Smith captured three individual races during the recent John A. Pidegon Memorial Invitational against Bloomsburg, winning the 100, 200 and 500 freestyle events. She also posted times in those races that qualified her for the PSAC Championships, to be held in York from Feb. 16-19.
Smith has also helped the Crimson Hawks to four dual wins on the year, and has collected a total of nine first-place finishes in those meets.
