Lonnegren Wins Fourth Straight Diving Award
Feb. 5, 2013
For the fourth consecutive week, University of Houston senior diver Julia Lonnegren has been named the Conference USA Diver of the Week.
Lonnegren posted a pair of runner-up finishes at No. 9 Texas A&M - scoring 280.5 in the 1M and 298.28 in the 3M. Both scores exceeded the NCAA Zone Diving standards, which UH hosts from March 11-13.
Since the award began in 2001, Cougar divers have earned the Diver of the Week honors 77 out of a possible 132 times. Of the seven honors awarded this season, five have gone to Houston student-athletes (Lonnegren, 4; Natasha Burgess, 1).
Lonnegren joins fellow Cougar Yulia Pakhalina (2002-03) as the only C-USA divers to win the award four consecutive weeks.
This is the 11th overall Diver of the Week award for Lonnegren.
