The Arizona State women's swimming and diving team concluded the NCAA Championships as the Sun Devils finished in 22nd with 29 points. Sophomore Elina Eggers snagged All-American honors on the 10-meter platform on the final day.
Eggers scored 302.4 points to place fourth on the 10-meter. The 2008 Olympian was missed the podium by five points but still earned her first All-American accolades of her career. She scored 310.30 points in the preliminaries to gain a spot in the finals.
"Elina dove well and had a chance to place higher but was a little off on her last dive," said 13-year head diving coach Mark Bradshaw. "It was a good learning experience for her and she improved each day. It was a cap of a good season for her and I expect to see more out of her last season. Overall, I'm very pleased."
In swimming, senior Jamie Martinez concluded her Sun Devil career with a 29th place finish in the 200 back. Martinez clocked in a solid 1:56.37 in her final swim. Ashley Evans ended her ASU career by touching the pad at 50.73 in the 100 freestyle. Sophomore Jordyn Green clocked in at 2:11.98 in the 200 breast preliminaries to place 21st overall. All-American Rebecca Ejdervik earned a time of 2:13.43 in the same event. She is now fifth on ASU's all-time list in the event.
Two divers will head to the men's swimming and diving NCAA Championships next week.
