Diver of the Week

Brittney Feldman, Indiana

Feldman swept the diving events in a dual meet with Northwestern last Friday as the Hoosiers won the meet 172.5-127.5.  The junior tallied a one-meter score of 311.80 and a three-meter score of 341.50.  Both of Feldman’s first-place dives bettered the NCAA standard which qualifies her for the NCAA Zone Diving meet in March.  This is Feldman’s first Big Ten Diver of the Week accolade.
