Elina Eggers Named ASU Female Athlete of the Week
Nov. 25, 2009
Women's diver Elina Eggers has been named ASU's Female Athlete of the Week for the week ending November 28th. Her spectacular performance on the tower resulted in a first-place finish at the Wildcat Diving Invitational. Her score of 284.50 points easily qualified her for the NCAA Zone E Championships in March. Eggers and the diving team will now head to Columbus, Ohio to partake in the OSU Invitational.
Eggers, a 2008 Olympic finalist, proved she was as good as advertised when the Swedish sophomore handily won the 10-meter platform at the Wildcat Invitational. With 284.50 points, she easily earned an NCAA automatic qualifying score. In addition, Eggers placed second on the 1-meter springboard over the weekend with an NCAA A standard of 299.25 and sixth on the 3-meter, earning 258 points.
