Huntington, W.Va. -

Diver Lauren Rone has been named Marshall's Athlete of the Week after her record breaking performance this past weekend against Xavier.

Rone against the Musketeers posted the all-time mark in the one-meter diving event with a score of 281.55. The junior's score qualifies her for the NCAA Zone Diving Championships to be held in Buffalo, N.Y. scheduled for mid-March.

Rone's performance has continued to improve throughout the season, as she has continued to put up strong scores all season in both the one and three meter diving events.
