In the women's platform, Arizona's Carly Smith took home her first title as she comfortably won by almost 20 points over Stanford's Shana Karp, 284.20-264.80.

USC's Christine Petrilli finished in third place (259.50), followed by Stanford's Katie Lampe (258.45) in fourth place and Arizona State's Brittany Jumer (255.30) in fifth.
