AUSTIN, TEXAS – University of Arkansas sophomore diver Madison Palmer placed 12th in the one-meter event Saturday afternoon at the NCAA Zone "D" Diving Meet at the University of Texas’ Lee and Joe Jamail Texas Swimming Center in Austin, Texas. Palmer scored a 448.15 on the one meter. “Madison dove a lot better than she did last year and she’s still young in diving years,” said diving coach Scott Reich. “She had a chance to qualify, but it just wasn’t her day.” Junior Brieanne Kushner, who placed seventh on the three-meter yesterday, finished 19th today with a score of 418.95 on the one meter. Sophomore Kellyn Williams took a 21st-place finish, scoring 408.80. Coach Reich was pleased with the Lady’Backs’ performances and is optimistic about the squad. “I think we gained some great experience this year,” he said. “They gave it their best shot. I’m already excited about next year and don’t doubt we’ll be the best team in the conference.” Arkansas diving competes in the final day of the NCAA Zone Meet tomorrow with the platform diving event.
