State College’s Grace Dangelo is the Centre Daily Times’ Female Athlete of the Week.

The Lady Little Lions’ junior swimmer boasted another solid performance — this time at a dual meet Tuesday against Cumberland Valley, in which State College won 101-82.

Dangelo came away with a pair of individual first-place finishes (100 butterfly, 200 IM) while also helping the 200 medley relay team to a win. (Her 400 freestyle relay team placed second by 0.64 seconds.)

In the 100 butterfly, Dangelo had a time of 59.76 seconds, more than a full second faster than the runner-up. She also clocked a time of 2:15.38 in the 200 individual medley, nearly two seconds better than the second-place finisher.
