FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — In her second international event of the summer, freshman diver Brooke Schultz shined on the world stage, winning silver in the women’s 3m springboard at the World University Games, with a finals score of 323.05.
In the 3m prelims, she dove a 267.95 to finish eighth out of 32 to advance to the semifinals, where she proceeded to score a 309.75 and finish second out of 18. She saved her best effort for last, scoring a 323.05, narrowly missing gold by 4.80 points.
Early Thursday, she teamed up with fellow American and Texas’ Alison Gibson in the 3m synchro. The two dove Schultz’s international synchro personal best of 268.17 to finish fourth out of nine in the finals.
To start the games, Schultz scored a 234.55 to finish 15th out of 33 on the 1m, barely missing the cut.
Schultz’s summer world tour is not quite over, as she will be one of 24 American divers to compete at the Junior Pan American Championships in Victoria, British Columbia, from Sept. 25 to Oct. 1. There, she will compete on the 1m and 3m springboards.
Earlier this summer, Schultz, along with Arkansas freshman diver Maha Amer and senior Nicole Gillis, dove at the 2017 FINA World Championship in Budapest Hungary, where she finished 25th (248.80) in the 3m.
