2010-11 Season - Myers wins both diving events at CCIW meet
|Freshman Helen Myers won both the one and meter diving events at the College Conference of Illinois & Wisconsin meet on Saturday, February 12 in Bloomington, Illinois.|
Freshman Helen Myers (Pecatonica HS, Rock City, Ill.) won both the one and three meter diving events at the College Conference of Illinois & Wisconsin championship on Saturday, February 12. The diving portion of the CCIW meet is held one week before the swimming competition. While the swimmers will gather at Wheaton College in Wheaton, Illinois for a three day meet from February 17 through February 19, the diving events were held at Illinois Wesleyan in Bloomington, Illinois.
Myers won the one meter event with a score of 339.0, besting Lindsey DeSutter of Illinois Wesleyan, who tallied 330.35. In the three meter event Myers posted a score of 358.85, topping her junior teammate Tanya Walter (Prospect HS, Mount Prospect, Ill.). Walter scored 331.80 in grabbing second. Earlier in the day, Walter finished fourth in the one meter event with a score of 296.15.
Both of Myers’ scores were season’s bests for her. She had a previous high score of 325.20 in the one meter diving event and 328.80 off the three meter board. Both of those scores were recorded at the Grinnell Invitational over the weekend of January 21-22.
She is the second Augustana diver in as many years to win both events in the CCIW meet. In 2010, Walter was a double winner, taking the one meter diving with a score of 309.05 and the three meter with 315.70 points.
The diving events will be factored into the team scores for the coming weekend and right now, Augustana is in second place with 72 points. Illinois Wesleyan is leading with 97 points. Rose-Hulman, which only competes in the CCIW in swimming & diving, is in third with 31.
