FIU sweeps C-USA Swimmer & Diver of the Week (again)

Junor Courtney VanderSchaaf won the 50 freestyle (24.67) and 100 free (53.57) at Saturday's dual meet against Central Connecticut.

Senior diver Sabrina Beaupre did what she does, sweeping both the 1-meter and 3-meter events, but added the bonus of a school record 335.85 in the 1-meter win. Beating her own school record, of course.

And that's why they are, respectively Conference USA's Swimmer of the Week and Diver of the Week. It's already Beaupre's fourth Conference USA Diver of the Week honor. Last week, Beaupre and freshman Jenny Alfani snagged both for FIU.

 

Possible Comings & Goings, II

If FAU running backs coach Kerry Dixon is on his way south to FIU, as CoachingSearch.com suggests, that would be a guy with experience in recruiting Dade County and with ties in Texas. Neither exactly hurts in recruiting raw talent.

American High safety Andrew Soroh, rated at two or three stars depending on the site, switched his committment from FIU to FAU today, announced via Twitter. As commenter FIU Fanatic pointed out, American High coach Corey Bell has just joined FAU's coaching staff. Bell will be the defensive backs coach at FAU.

Wonder if somebody ever suggested, as Ron Turner was putting together his first staff, that it include Bell or Telly Lockette, now running backs coach at South Florida...

Of course, all this is just conversation until Signing Day.
