Athlete of the Week: Maureen Donovan


The Scoop:

Donovan is a senior on the women’s swimming and diving team here at Le Moyne. The Oswego, N.Y. native has been quite a powerhouse in the pool. Maureen helped to lead the dolphins in their big win over St. Michael’s College this year. Donovan swims in both individual races and relays. The 100 yard freestyle and the 500 yard freestyle are Donovan’s two main individual races and this year she has also swam the 50 yard freestyle, 200 yard freestyle, 1000 yard freestyle and on the 200 yard medley relay team. So far this year, Mo has beaten her best times from last year in three different races. Donovan shed a second off of her 50-yard freestyle time, her 100-yard freestyle time and her 1000-yard freestyle time. Donovan still has the Northeast- 10 Championships ahead of her before hanging up her goggles here at Le Moyne during the first weekend of February.


How it all began:

“I got started in swimming my freshman year of High School. I had been a synchronize swimmer since I was seven, so I already had a feel for the water and wanted to give swimming a try.”


Major and future plans:

Donovan is a psychology major. She hopes to do child psychology in the future.


Most influential person to Maureen’s swimming career:

“The person who has most influenced me in swimming has been my sister Maggie. She swam in High School and here at Le Moyne as well. She has always pushed me to try my hardest and never give up.”


Goals for her career at Le Moyne:

“My goal has always been to go best times at Championships and so far I have accomplished that every year. I hope to do so this year as well.”


Impact of choosing Division 2:

“I’d say swimming division II has helped me grow as a swimmer because I’ve been able to develop and get faster on a competitive team without all the stress and pressure of a larger division 1 team.”


Advice to other swimmers:

“Advice I’d give to the other swimmers here would be to not stress out too much have fun because it’s just swimming and to get used to hearing the word reasonable.”
