CHARLOTTE, N.C. - College of Charleston senior diver Peter Gibbons and junior swimmer Dave Sherrier swept the CCSA Male Weekly Honors as Gibbons won the Diver of the Week and Sherrier earned the Swimmer of the Week honor. It marks the first time this season that the Cougars have won both awards in the same week.

Sherrier helped lead the Cougars to a second-place finish at the Wingate Fall Frenzy this past weekend, swimming a career-best 4:40.20 in the 500 free, a season-best 1:41.56 in the 200 free and a season-best 46.80 in the 100 freestyle. He also competed in four of College of Charleston's relays. He swam a 20.88 split in the 200 free relay, a 45.77 free leg during the 400 medley relay, a 20.41 free leg on the 200 medley relay and 46.26 on the anchor leg of the 400 free relay.

Gibbons, the school's most decorated male diver, competed in both the one-meter and three-meter diving events at the Wingate Fall Frenzy, winning both events. He scored 271.45 on the three-meter board and 260.15 on the one-meter board.

This award is Gibbons' second honor this season and marks the 12th time that Gibbons has won a CCSA weekly honor in his four-year career. It is also the third time this season that the Cougars have won a CCSA Male Diver of the Week award.

College of Charleston will return to the pool in January when Campbell and the Savannah College of Art & Design come to the Stern Center pool.
