Mike Shaw Named ECAC Division III Diver of the Week For Sixth Time

SPRINGFIELD, Mass., February 28, 2006 - Springfield College senior All-American Mike Shaw (Westfield, Mass.) has been honored by the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) as the Division III Men’s Diver of the Week, in an announcement made late Tuesday morning, February 28.

Shaw, a graduate of Westfield High School, has taken this ECAC weekly honor home an astounding six times this season. The senior All-American garnered this award for the weeks of December 12, January 9, January 16, January 30, February 6, and now February 27.

Shaw won both the one- and three-meter diving competitions at this past weekend's (Feb. 24-26) NEWMAC Championships, scoring 508.70 and 521.55 points, respectively. The senior All-American has successfully won all eight diving titles in his remarkable four-year NEWMAC Championship career. Shaw is in the final stages of his dominant senior campaign, as he still has yet to lose on either board this season, an incredible feat indeed.

Shaw is looking to defend both national titles at the NCAA Division III Championships from Tuesday, March 14, to Sunday, March 19, at the University of Minnesota.
