INDIANAPOLIS, IN. January, 4. THE Mid-Continent Conference has announced that IUPUI diver Ryan Orzechowicz (Crown Point, Ind./Crown Point) has been named Mid-Con Athlete of the Week for Men’s Swimming and Diving. This is the fourth time in his career that Orzechowicz has been honored with this award.
Orzechowicz earned the distinction for his performance in IUPUI’s dual meet with Saint Louis on December 21. The 5-foot-9 senior took in both diving events, setting a pair of team season-best scores.
On the one-meter board, Orzechowicz tallied a career-best score of 303.20 points. That was the sixth-best score in school history in the event and qualified him for the NCAA Zone Diving Regionals. He garnered 302.95 points on the three-meter springboard, also the sixth-best score in IUPUI history.
Orzechowicz is now tied for fourth on IUPUI’s all-time wins list with 23 career victories. He also stands sixth with 50 career podium finishes.
