Schultz Takes Two Golds At Junior Pan-Am
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Diver Brooke Schultz took gold in the 1m and 3m springboard in her third international event in as many months, at the 2017 Junior Pan American Championships in Victoria, Canada.
Representing the United States, Schultz recorded a nine-dive score of 409.95 on the 1m for her first gold of the championships. She outscored the rest of the field by at least 28.8 points.
She also took home the gold on the 3m, with a nine-dive score of 437.85, outscoring the rest of the field by 13.05 points.
“I am excited for Brooke to have the opportunity to close out her junior diving career on such a high note,” Arkansas diving coach Dale Schultz said. “Brooke has continued to make improvements to her diving and represented both the United States of America and the Razorbacks at a high level internationally.”
The freshman is not afraid of the big stage. Earlier in the summer, Schultz finished second, taking home the silver in the 3m at the World University Games in Taipei, Taiwan.
She also participated at the 2017 FINA World Championships in Budapest, Hungary with fellow Arkansas divers Maha Amer and Nicole Gillis.
In her first collegiate experience in a dual meet against SMU, Schultz broke the school and pool record on the 3m with a score of 366.38. She also recorded the school record on the 1m springboard, scoring a 343.43.
