MAC Men's Swimmer of the Week

Zach Niehaus
Sr. (Taylor Mill, Ky./Scott)
Niehaus swept the boards over the weekend as he posted the top score in the one- and three-meter dives in Miami's 145-96 win over Ball State on Nov. 12. Niehaus was one of only two Miami athletes to post multiple wins at the conference dual meet, and his two victories marked his first sweep of the boards this season. His win in the one-meter board (272.10) was his second win in the event for the season, while the three-meter diving win (297.53) was his first of the year.
