Schultz Earns Second NCAA Bid
AUSTIN, Texas- Sophomore Brooke Schultz qualified for the NCAA Championship for the second event in as many days, taking second in the 1-meter at the NCAA Zone ‘D’ Diving Championships Tuesday night to advance to the national championship.
Maha Amer and Schultz once again took to the springboards at Texas, the lone divers to represent Arkansas. Amer earned a 22nd place finish (247.55) in the preliminary round, with Schultz taking fourth with a score of 305.35.
Advancing to the final round, Schultz recorded a 643.25 to finish in second place and earn another spot at the NCAA Championships. The Fayetteville, Ark. native qualified for the national championship in the 3-meter last night, where she will look to defend her title later this month.
Schultz is the seventh Razorback to qualify for the national championship, with Peyton Palsha and Anna Hopkin receiving individual invites while Molly Moore, Kobie Melton, Marlena Pigliacampi, and Sydney Angell earned the opportunity to swim in three relays.
The Zone ‘D’ Diving Championships will conclude tomorrow, as Amer is set to compete on the platform.
