DENVER, Colo. – Senior Alexa Geiger swept the diving events versus New Mexico State on Saturday and as a result earned her second WAC Diver of the Week award this season announced by the conference office on Tuesday.

Geiger, out of Fullerton, Calif., was one of many key components in NAU's 168-127 triumph of the Aggies when she posted winning scores of 304.80 on 3-meter and 303.90 on 1-meter. She won the 3-meter event by nearly 17 points and notched another double-digit point win on the 1-meter springboard.

Both scores were NCAA Zone Qualifying scores, marking the third time this season in which Geiger has posted qualifying scores in both springboard events during a single dual meet.

Geiger has now won four individual dual meet events this season, including the 1-meter event in three straight meets versus New Mexico, Idaho and New Mexico State.

She will compete at the USA Diving Winter Nationals in Columbus, Ohio from Dec. 15-21 while the rest of the Lumberjack swimming & diving team will take on Arizona State in a dual meet on Dec. 16 in Tempe.
