Kushner Ninth Lady’Backs Try Tower

COLLEGE STATION, Texas-Arkansas freshman diver Brieanne Kushner finished ninth on the one-meter springboard at the NCAA Zone “D” Diving Championships in College Station, Texas, Saturday, March 12.

Kushner scored 471.85 points on the one meter and had 227.25 points in the preliminaries. She competes on platform, Sunday, along with freshmen Hilarie Wilson and Jamie Hyslop. The Lady Razorback trio is attempting to qualify for nationals on the final day of competition.

Arkansas diving head coach Scott Reich Kushner’s showing on the one-meter board was much improved after her 11th-place finish on three meter and is hopeful about the platform competition.

“It was pretty good, but not quite good enough,” Reich said. “She came a long way. I was pleased with her performance. My fingers are crossed for the platform.”
