Panther Women Wrap Up UND Invite In Style
Dec. 3, 2004
SOUTH BEND, Ind. - Junior Erin Blemberg took third place to lead the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee women's diving team in the finals of three-meter diving on the second day of the Notre Dame Invitational. The Panthers concluded action at the meet with the completion of the both diving events.
"Today's diving was very good," diving coach Todd Hill said. "The three women in the finals were spectacular. Tonight's finals diving was amazing."
Blemberg tallied 427.60 points over 11 dives to lead two more teammates in the finals of the event.
Sophomore Crystal Szymanski concluded a successful meet, taking fourth from the three-meter board with 416.40 points. She was Milwaukee's only representative in Thursday's one-meter event, taking second.
"Crystal had a lackluster performance in today's preliminaries," Hill said. "She came back and tore it up in finals. She, by far, has been our most consistant divers this week. She looked good in the finals on both days, this was one of her better meets of the year."
Rounding out the finalists for the Panthers was freshman Jenna Kotlarz, who took seventh. Kotlarz notched 355.50 points in the event.
While the women divers concluded action at the Notre Dame Invite, the Milwaukee men continue on Saturday with one-meter diving. The Panther swimmers opened competition at the Wheaton Invitational earlier today, and wrap up Saturday as well.
