JUNIOR (2010-11): Liana Bugslag dove her way to three first-place finishes as a junior for the Razorbacks. She had her best performance on the one-meter board during the Razorbacks' winter training trip in Indianapolis, Ind. She scored 291.75 against Wyoming/Penn State during the training week for first overall. Bugslag also finished first in her first meet of the season at Vanderbilt. She was first on the one-meter with 269.55 and first on the three-meter with 272.55. The junior improved her three-meter mark to a season and career best 312.38 against Kansas when she finished second at the dual. Bugslag shined on the platform at the 2011 SEC Championships when she marked 249.65 in the prelims. She finished sixth on the platform with a finals score of 347.30. Bugslag finished in the top three seven times throughout the season and improved her best mark on the platform with a career-high 283.43 points, good for second on the all-time list. Bugslag had four scores on the one-meter board that qualified her for the NCAA Zone 'D Diving Championships as well as four on the platform and three on the three-meter board.

SOPHOMORE (2009-10): Bugslag was the anchor for the Arkansas diving team as a sophomore. Bugslag pushed through a wrist injury to finish the season with 12 top four finishes including three wins. She swept the one-meter and three-meter events against Vanderbilt and added a first-place finish on the one-meter against Utah. Her four second-place finishes came against Utah, Florida and Kansas, North Texas and Kentucky and University of the Cumberlands. At the 2010 SEC Swimming and Diving Championships, Bugslag advanced to the finals of the platform event for the first time and scored with an eighth-place finish. Her mark of 254.65 in the event preliminaries set a school record. She just missed qualifying for the NCAA championships as she finished sixth on the platform at the NCAA Zone Diving event.

FRESHMAN (2008-09): Bugslag came out strong as a freshman for the Razorbacks, posting seven top four finishes during the season. Bugslag's best performance was a second-place finish on tower at the Mizzou Invite. Bugslag placed fourth on the one-meter springboard in a dual meet with No. 10 Tennessee and Vanderbilt in her Razorback debut.

Bugslag built her diving records for the Boardworks Diving program in the absence of a high school swimming program.  Bugslag was provincial champion in the one and three-meter platform dives four times.  She earned a silver medal at Australian Nationals, three golds and two silvers diving at the Finnish Nationals along with a second and third place at the Canadian Nationals.  In 2008, Bugslag was a finalist in the Canadian Olympic trials.

Born Nov. 26, 1990, Liana Nicole Bugslag is the daughter of Bob and Linda Bugslag of Victoria, B.C., Canada.  Bugslag chose Arkansas because of the Arkansas staff and the strong business program. Bugslag is majoring in public relations.
