Friday May 4, 2012Five Florida Swimmers and Divers to Participate in Weekend Commencement Ceremonies

Gainesville, Fla.

This weekend, three male swimmers and a pair of female divers will receive their degrees alongside 32 other Gator student-athletes throughout various commencement ceremonies at the Stephen C. O’Connell Center.

Among the graduates from the men’s swimming team are Conor Dwyer (Winnetka, Ill.), Jonathan Jordan (Tampa, Fla.) and Alex Martin (Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla.). The women’s diving team will be represented by Kaylee Doback (Brandon, Fla.) and Monica Dodson (Franklin, Ind.).

Both Dwyer and Dodson made a considerable impact on the University of Florida Swimming and Diving Team throughout their tenure in the Orange and Blue as the duo combined to break four school records and earn three SEC yearly honors.

Dwyer, the 2010 Division I Male Swimmer of the Year, graduates from Florida with two individual National Championship titles – each from the 2010 NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships – and seven All-American honors to his name. The two-time SEC Male Swimmer of the Year also holds the school record in the 500-yard freestyle and 400-yard IM.

Dodson, the 2011 SEC Women’s Diver of the Year, boasts five All-American and two All-SEC recognitions to her name. She wrapped up her senior campaign breaking the school record in both the three-meter and platform competitions at the 2011 SEC Swimming and Diving Championships at the Stephen C. O’Connell Center.

Three-time SEC Academic Honor Roll honoree and fellow diver, Doback, will also receive her degree this weekend.

Additionally, Jordan and Martin will join Dwyer as graduates from the men’s swimming and diving team.  Together, the pair has been selected to the SEC Academic Honor Roll every eligible year and been selected to the CSCAA Honorable Mention All-Academic Team.
