Mabel Fowler and Daniel Valmassei Earn SCAC Honors

San Antonio - Trinity's Mabel Fowler and Daniel Valmassei have been selected as the respective Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Women's Swimmer and Men's Diver of the Week.

The two first-year student-athletes each earned the honor for the second time this season after turning in excellent performances last weekend in Hixon Natatorium. Trinity's divers hosted the State University of New York-Fredonia to open the competition, and joined the swimmers the next day to defeat Southwestern (TX) University.

Valmassei emerged as the champion of the men's six-dive and 11-dive 1-meter board against Southwestern. He finished as runner-up in both events to SUNY-Fredonia in the 3-meter competition.

Fowler was a double-winner in the meet with Southwestern. She captured the women's 200-yard individual medley by a winning margin of four seconds. Fowler swam the 100-yard backstroke in a tick less than one minute.

Both the Tiger swimmers and divers head to Nashville, Tennessee, to take on Centre (KY) College and Birmingham-Southern (AL) College on Sunday.
