COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Junior diver Megan Harper has been named the Mountain West Diver of the Week as announced by the conference office late yesterday. The award is the second of Harper's career; her first honor came last season during the week of Jan. 25.

The graduate of Xavier College Preparatory in Phoenix, Ariz. Helped the Lobos reach a 2-1 record this past weekend as they faced Colorado State, San Diego State and New Mexico State in a quad meet hosted by the Lobos.

New Mexico defeated CSU 194-139 and NMSU by a final score of 195-138. Harper dove to a first place finish off the 1-meter board with a score of 300.30 and third place finish off the 3-meter board with a final tally of 294.36. Both scores qualify her for NCAA Zones. This is the third meet in a row she turns in Zone qualifying results. Harper and teammates Aubrey Bush and Michole Timm have all qualified for the NCAA Championship Meet qualifier which will be held in March on the campus of the Air Force Academy.

With three divers qualifying, New Mexico leads the way among MW schools prior to last weekend's meet.

Up next for Harper and the Lobo swim and dive team is a trip to Reno, Nevada to face the Wolfpack on Nov. 10 at 10 a.m. MT.
