East Lyme diver Gonsalves signs with Northeastern

Published November 23. 2013 4:00AM

Caroline Gonsalves, an East Lyme High School senior who finished in the top three at the Class M state championship meet in all four years of her career, has signed a national letter of intent to compete next year for Division I Northeastern University in Boston. She will receive a partial scholarship, she said.

Gonsalves won the Class M championship on Nov. 7 this year at Bulkeley High School in Hartford, scoring 391.25 points. She was second in Class M as a freshman, third as a sophomore and second as a junior.

Gonsalves finished her East Lyme diving career with a third-place finish at the State Open.

"I thought the co-op program was so cool," Gonsalves said of the five-year course of study at Northeastern, where students alternate semesters of study with semesters of full-time employment in their field.

"And I loved the team. I liked the coaches. I wanted to be in a city since I was a little girl. My dad has always been a huge Red Sox fan; we're big Bruins, big everything. Everything just worked out. It was my No. 1 school."
