Eggers Earns All-American Honors on 10-Meter
March 20, 2010
The Arizona State women's swimming and diving team concluded the NCAA Championships as the Sun Devils finished in 22nd with 29 points. Sophomore Elina Eggers snagged All-American honors on the 10-meter platform on the final day.
Eggers scored 302.4 points to place fourth on the 10-meter. The 2008 Olympian was missed the podium by five points but still earned her first All-American accolades of her career. She scored 310.30 points in the preliminaries to gain a spot in the finals.
'Elina dove well and had a chance to place higher but was a little off on her last dive,' said 13-year head diving coach Mark Bradshaw. 'It was a good learning experience for her and she improved each day. It was a cap of a good season for her and I expect to see more out of her last season. Overall, I'm very pleased.'
In swimming, senior Jamie Martinez concluded her Sun Devil career with a 29th place finish in the 200 back. Martinez clocked in a solid 1:56.37 in her final swim. Ashley Evans ended her ASU career by touching the pad at 50.73 in the 100 freestyle. Sophomore Jordyn Green clocked in at 2:11.98 in the 200 breast preliminaries to place 21st overall. All-American Rebecca Ejdervik earned a time of 2:13.43 in the same event. She is now fifth on ASU's all-time list in the event.
Two divers will head to the men's swimming and diving NCAA Championships next week.
