Waxman Earns Second Highest Finish in School History on 1-Meter
ATLANTA- In her NCAA Championship debut, freshman Holly Waxman opened up competition on the 1m this afternoon and captured the second highest finish in school history in the event.
"Holly did an incredible job today and was so close to earning All-America honors. She was poised and steady throughout and looked like a veteran of this meet rather than someone competing here for the first time," head coach Richard Marschner said. "I'm so proud of her and what she's accomplished and I can't wait to see what tomorrow brings."
Go up against 47 of the nation's best on the 1m, Waxman showcased strong dives throughout to finish with a total of 279.35, good for 21st overall.
This gives Waxman the second highest finish in school history and was second amongst Pac-12 divers behind only Delaney Schnell of Arizona, who placed first in the prelims and went on to finish fifth in the championship final.
Waxman will continue her 2022 NCAA Women's Swimming and Diving Championship journey tomorrow on the 3m. Preliminaries will start at 10:30am MT and can be seen live on ESPN3. Live results of the event can also be seen here.
