Lizzie Johns Named MWC Performer of the Week

Lake Forest College diver Lizzie Johns was named Midwest Conference Performer of the Week on Tuesday for her performance in the team's 142-71 victory over visiting Illinois Institute of Technology on Saturday.

Johns won both diving events with career-best scores, beginning with a 246.80-point tally in the 1-meter competition. The defending conference champion in that event's previous career-high was 243.45 points, set against Illinois Tech almost exactly two years earlier. The junior also finished with 233.90 points off the 3-meter board, 22.40 more than her previous best.

Johns and the other Forester divers will take on NCAA Division I competition at the UIC Diving Invitational this Saturday at 11:00 a.m.

MWC Performers of the Week are selected by the league office. She is the first member of the Forester women's team to earn the award this season.
