University of Minnesota diver Maggie Keefer was named the Big Ten Co-Diver of the Week Tuesday following the Gophers’ victory over Wisconsin last weekend. Keefer shares the honor with Ohio State’s Cheyenne Cousineau.
The honor is Keefer’s second of the season and seventh of her career.
The Minnesota women’s swimming and diving team has now earned at least one Big Ten Weekly Award for the fourth-straight week.
Keefer earned the league’s weekly honor by winning 1 meter diving with a score of 295.20, while also placing first on the 3 meter board with a mark of 313.05 to help the Gophers defeat the Badgers, 183-112, on Senior Day at the University Aquatic Center Friday.
