Franklin sophomore Lexi Blackburn (Clayton, Ind. / Cascade) has been named the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference women’s diver of the week.
Blackburn just missed her second NCAA Regional qualification of the year Saturday as she soared to a 1st place finish in the 3-meter diving competition on Saturday versus Illinois Tech and Loras College. Her score of 218.60 was good enough to out distance the competition. Blackburn followed up her 3-meter win with a second place finish on the 1-meter board with a score of 244.90.
Franklin moved to 5-0 in dual competition with wins of Millikin, Illinois Tech and Loras over the weekend. The Franklin Grizzlies women’s swimming and diving team will face Centre and Manchester on Saturday at 1 p.m.
