BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Freshman diver Brooke Schultz claimed her fourth SEC Diver of the Week honor from the league office Tuesday, following her performance at the Art Adamson Invite last week.
It is the third straight for Schultz, as she broke her own school record on the 3m in the finals in College Station, Texas.
“Brooke continues to perform at an elite level,” said head coach Neil Harper. “The competition at our mid-season invite came from other SEC and PAC-12 schools, so our schedule is exposing her to the best competition in the country. Her performance and consistency comes from a great work ethic at practice and being challenged by her teammates.”
In the 3m prelims, Schultz scored a 362.15, just shy of her school record to win the prelims and move on to the finals. In the finals, she broke her school record set earlier in the year, scoring a 370.95.
Through five meets this season, Schultz has yet to finish off the top podium spot in any of her 12 diving events, setting three separate pool records (Arkansas – 1m and 3m; UCLA – 3m) and four Arkansas school records in the 1M (twice) and 3M (twice).
In the 1m prelims, she paced the field, scoring 350.60 to finish first and advance to the finals, where she won with a score of 328.15.
Schultz has won each of her first 12 dives to start her collegiate career, by an average of 39.48 points in the 1m and 30.67 points in the 3m.
All 12 of Schultz’s dives this season are NCAA Zone Qualifying scores.
