For Hollie Bonewit-Cron, swimming isn’t just her job it’s her passion. The NSU Swimming and Diving team head coach is a trailblazer and inspiration to her swimmers
Scuba diving can now be checked off the list of exciting programs at NSU, thanks to the new academic diving program. This program offers scuba diving training for academic credit as well as for recreation purpose.
The Introduction to Scuba Diving (MBIO 4900), was added to the course catalog this summer. The course is a three-credit hour elective from Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences. Students become certified divers at the end of the course. There is a $200 lab fee, which covers boat fees, lake dives, books and other materials needed for the class.
On Feb. 18, both the men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams celebrated a conference championship. Both teams led from day one of the meet and were able to hold off the opposition for victories. With conference championships under their belts, both teams are focused for nationals, which are scheduled to take place March 14-18.
From Feb. 15-18, both the men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams will compete at the Sunshine State Conference championship in Clearwater, FL. The men will look to defend their conference crown, while the women hope to capture their first conference title in program history.
“I think our athletes did a phenomenal job of getting in shape over the summer, and it showed coming into this fall, and our performances in practice only helped them in their meet,” she said.
The NSU men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams are ready to jump into their inaugural season.
