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).
