Women's diver Elina Eggers has been named ASU's Female Athlete of the Week for the week ending November 28th. Her spectacular performance on the tower resulted in a first-place finish at the Wildcat Diving Invitational. Her score of 284.50 points easily qualified her for the NCAA Zone E Championships in March. Eggers and the diving team will now head to Columbus, Ohio to partake in the OSU Invitational.
Eggers, a 2008 Olympic finalist, proved she was as good as advertised when the Swedish sophomore handily won the 10-meter platform at the Wildcat Invitational. With 284.50 points, she easily earned an NCAA automatic qualifying score. In addition, Eggers placed second on the 1-meter springboard over the weekend with an NCAA A standard of 299.25 and sixth on the 3-meter, earning 258 points.
