Freshman diver Blythe Hartley won the 1-meter title on the first day of the Pac-10 Conference Diving Championships at Arizona on Thursday (Feb. 28) in Tucson, Ariz.
Hartley won the event with room to spare with 325.50 points, well ahead of second-place Ashlee Rosenthal (286.80) of Stanford. Hartley's USC teammates Nicci Fusaro (282.65) and Kellie Brennan (262.70) finished third and fifth, respectively.
Hartley's win marked the fourth consecutive year a Trojan has won the 1-meter at the conference championships. Brennan won the event the previous three years.
The diving results count toward the overall Pac-10 swimming and diving team championship. The swimming portion is taking place at Belmont Plaza in Long Beach, Calif., Thursday through Saturday.
