Lady’Back Divers Just Miss Nationals

COLLEGE STATION, Texas-Arkansas freshman diver Brieanne Kushner led the Lady Razorbacks on platform with a sixth-place finish at the NCAA Zone “D” Diving Championships, Sunday.

Freshmen Jamie Hyslop and Hilarie Wilson finished seventh and 11th-place respectively. The Lady’Backs did not qualify for NCAA Championships.

Arkansas diving coach Scott Reich said the Lady’Backs had the opportunity to qualify and he now looks ahead to the future for his young crew.

“They had their chances to make it,” Reich. “Overall, it was a great learning experience. Sometimes it’s easy to forget they’re freshmen and they have a lot to learn.”
