DENTON, Texas- The Mean Green divers return to the boards on November 18th for the first day of the Tiger Southwest Shootout in Southlake.
Sophomore diver Catherine Johnson was named Sun Belt Diver of the last week after winning on both boards against SMU and Wyoming this past weekend. Johnson has been named Sun Belt Diver of the Week twice this season.
Johnson won both the 1-meter dive (257.45) and 3-meter dive (276.35) against SMU and Wyoming. This is the third meet in a row that she won the 1-meter diving after defeating both New Mexico State and Tulane.
Earlier this season, sophomore Rebecca Taylor narrowly missed qualifying for NCAA Zone Diving, winning the 3-meter dive versus New Mexico State with a score of 276.52, just four points off the threshold, and the third-best score in school history.
The Tiger Southwest Shootout extends through Saturday, November 19th.
