MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (October 14, 2013) - West Virginia University women’s swimming and diving junior Haily VandePoel has been named the Varsity Sport Report Athlete of the Week.
VandePoel, a Holland, Mich., native won the 1-meter dive (297.55) and broke a school and pool record in the 3-meter dive (346.43) at the West Virginia State Games to start the regular season.
“Haily (VandePoel) has very high standards for herself, and breaking the pool record has been one of her goals this season,” diving coach Michael Grapner says. “I’m excited for her and proud of all the divers.”
“Once again, the divers had great days on the boards,” says coach Vic Riggs. “They are diving better at this point of the year than last year which is great.”
