Ashley Goins named CCSA Diver of the Week
Senior Ashley Goins (Silver Spring, MD) was announced as Women's Diver of the Week in the Coastal Collegiate Swimming Association for November 8-14. This marks the first time in over 15 years that a Howard University diver received any athletic honor and the first Diver of the Week recipient by a member of the Bison since the conference's first existence in 2007.
Goins defeated six Loyola Greyhound divers on Saturday, November 13 to catapult her to this honor. She scored a season-best 245.62 in her 1-meter diving routine and another season-best in the 3-meter event with a 199.73.
"I'm very proud to represent Howard and the rest of the team with this award," said Goins. "I still have a lot of work to do and look forward to this weekend's meet and the rest of the season."
This is the first time a Howard Bison has won a Swimmer or Diver of the Week award this year. Goins was also nominated for this award for the week of October 25-31. The senior will now travel to George Mason with the rest of the Bison Swimmming and Diving teams to compete in the Patriot Invitational on November 19-21.
