COLCHESTER, Vt. - The Saint Michael's College swimming & diving teams landed four student-athletes on the Northeast-10 Conference Weekly Honor Roll for the week ending Sunday, Jan. 20.

Kinville then scored 117.30 and 159.30 points in the first and second one-meter diving events, respectively, against The College of Saint Rose in a 129-86 loss on Friday. Kinville now has seven individual diving wins this season after totaling two in his first two year combined.

Hopkins won five times with two second-place finishes last week. Against Norwich, he topped the 100- (25.29) and 200-yard backstroke (55.05) while leading off for the top 200-yard medley relay (1:42.89) and anchoring the winning 400-yard freestyle relay (1:31.75). Versus Saint Rose, Hopkins won the 200 back (2:02.28) while taking second during the 50 free (22.01) and anchoring the runner-up 400 free relay (3:22.59).
