The league office also announced its 2017-18 Athletes to Watch this season. Junior All-American Bailey Andison (Smiths Falls, Ontario) and freshman diver Zora Opalka (Bainbridge Island, Wash.) were recognized on the women’s list, while freshman men’s diver Turner Dobbs (Evanston, Ill.) and senior All-American Anton Loncar (Hillsboro, Ore.) were listed on the men’s side.
