NEWPORT NEWS, Va. -- After a dominating performance at the Patriot Invitational over the weekend, senior Irina Chiulli was named the Atlantic 10's Performer of the Week.
This is the second time this season she has earned the honor, and the seventh time in her career.
Chiulli shined in both the 1M and 3M events last week. She won both the prelims and finals of the 3M event and registered another NCAA Zone Qualifying mark during the prelims with a score of 296.65, which is a season-best thus far. In the final, she bested the competition by nearly 40 points.
The Westwood, Mass. native closed out the diving portion of the Invitational by winning the 1M as she posted the best score again in both the prelims (244.05) and the finals (257.70), as she bested the field by 28.5 points.
Chiulli and the Spiders will return to action on Saturday, December 3 in the nation's captial with an A-10 dual meet with George Washington.
