Two Lobos Move on to Championship Round at Nationals
Aug. 17, 2012
GREENSBORO, N.C. - After a long day at the pool yesterday, former Lobo diver Ashlee Erickson saw herself in the final of the women's 3-meter springboard final. Her preliminary/quarterfinal round score of 253.85 put her in 14th place, and was just enough to see her move on to the finals round which will take place tomorrow, Aug. 18 at the Greensboro Aquatic Center starting at noon ET.
Erickson performed well in the semi-final round and recorded a score of 273.60 that was good for a seventh place finish and a spot in the finals.
The diver, who graduated from UNM this past spring and also goes by "Gabby", had a quick turnaround as she also dove as a synchronized pair off the 3-meter board with sophomore Michole Timm this morning. The field in the event consisted of 20 divers, or ten pairs, and the team from New Mexico finished fourth with a score of 241.62.
The finals for the synchronized 3-meter springboard event will take place on Sunday, Aug. 19 beginning at 1:00 p.m. ET.
