PROVO, Utah – (November 14, 2013) Diver Nicholas Suder of BYU was named Mountain Pacific Sports Federation/TURBO Male Athlete of the Week for his outstanding performance in competition against UNLV last weekend.

The junior from Littleton, Colo., won both diving events against the Runnin’ Rebels, scoring a 322.58 on the 1-meter board and a 309.90 on the 3-meter. This marked the second year in a row that he took first in both events against UNLV. Suder also currently ranks second in conference on both 1-meter and 3-meter boards.

Last year Suder was named MPSF Male Diver of the Year for his high performances and first-place finishes on the diving board. He stole the spotlight, winning both 1-meter and 3-meter at the MPSF Diving Championship, scoring 328.65 and 35.95, respectively. Suder was also named all-MPSF first team for those performances in the championship.
