CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Maine has earned four America East weekly swimming and diving honors after its weekend meeting with Bates College. Robbie Bickford has been named Male Swimmer of the Week while Travis Wibby earns Male Diver of the Week honors. On the women’s side, Erica Smrcina earns the Swimmer of the Week nod and Kara Capossela takes home Diver of the Week honors. 

Bickford (Milford, Maine) swept the distance events in Maine’s victory on Saturday. The senior won the 1000 free in a time of 10:18.19 and touched the wall first in the 500 free (4:57.92) as well. Bickford takes home his first America East weekly honors of the year.

For the second time this season, Wibby (South Portland, Maine) is the Diver of the Week. The junior was second on both the one-meter (219.85) and the three-meter (198.65) boards. Wibby’s efforts led to a 159-139 win for the Black Bears.

Smrcina (North Falmouth, Mass.) had a hand in three victories on the day. The junior notched a pair of individual wins before also helping the 200 medley relay quartet place first. Smrcina’s individual victories came in the 200 butterfly (2:12.51) and the 200 breaststroke (2:33.09).
 
Capossela (Greenwich, Conn.) takes home her third weekly swimming and diving award of the season after her performance against Bates. The junior swept the diving events, notching a score of 249.70 in the one-meter and 255.70 in the three-meter. Capossela helped Maine to 182-104 victory.

Maine was the only America East team in action over the weekend, as schools are wrapping up the 2012 portion of the season. Swimming and diving action will pick up again after the first of the year.
