Heath Ogawa Named Forester Athlete of the Week Again

Lake Forest College diver Heath Ogawa was named Forester Athlete of the Week for the ninth time in his career on Thursday.

Ogawa won the 3-meter competition and placed third off the 1-meter board at the NCAA Division III Region 1 Diving Meet over the weekend. The meet was hosted by Wabash College. His 536.60 points in Friday's 3-meter event were 32.20 more than the runner-up and assured him a fourth consecutive trip to the national meet. Ogawa finished with 469.15 points off the lower board on Saturday and his third-place finish would have secured his spot at the NCAA Championships even had he not performed so well on Friday.

The four-day NCAA Division III Championship Meet will begin on Wednesday, March 20, and be held at the Greensboro Aquatic Center in Greensboro, North Carolina. The men's 1-meter diving will take place on Thursday and the 3-meter competition on Saturday. Ogawa was named Division III National Diver of the Year in 2018 after winning the 3-meter event and finishing third off the 3-meter board.

Forester Athletes of the Week are selected by the Athletic Department on Thursdays. Ogawa has now earned the honor twice this season and nine times in his career.
