Klash Named As Little East Women's Swimming Rookie Of The Week

UMass Dartmouth freshman Danielle Klash was named as the Little East Conference Women’s Swimming Rookie of the Week on Monday afternoon for her efforts in the Corsairs’ home-opening dual-meet setback to Babson last Friday at the Tripp Natatorium.

Klash, a native of Gardner, Mass. and a graduate of Gardner High School, took top honors in the 1,000 yard freestyle with a time of 11:47.62 and added a third place performance in the 500 yard freestyle with a mark of 5:48.49.  Danielle began her collegiate career back on October 19th at the Roger Williams Invitational with an eighth place finish in the 200 yard freestyle (2:10.53).

Head Coach Cathy Motta’s squad returns to action on Wednesday evening when UMass Dartmouth ventures to Bridgewater State for a dual-meet that begins at 6:00 pm EDT.
