Molly Gelb was the
2013 Female Athlete of
the Year. The former Ann
Arbor Huron High School diver had a
strong freshman season for the Brown
University women's swimming and div-
ing team, scoring points in diving at the
Ivy League meet.
There were six divers on the Brown
team. Only three, including Gelb, com-
