March 17, 2012

AUBURN, Ala. – The 2012 NCAA Women’s Swimming and Diving Championships came to a close today at Auburn University, but not before Florida State could do some business.

Sophomore Katrina Young continued her streak on the Platform as she took fourth place with a score of 300.95. In just her first NCAA Championships, Young will walk away as an All-American as she put the Seminoles on the board for the meet.

“I couldn’t have been more thrilled,” Head Diving Coach Pat Jeffrey said. “What a way to finish. It was awesome to get some points on the board for FSU and it’s a great way for Katrina to finish the season.”

In addition, USA Diving has extended the invitation to the Shoreline, Wash. native to Olympic Trials because of her outstanding performances over the past month.

Also competing today was sophomore Tiffany Oliver as she finished the 100 free with a 49.45. Freshman Elizabeth Pepper also made her NCAA debut as she swam a 2:01.00 in the 200 fly.

The men will take the NCAA stage next weekend as they will head to Federal Way, Wash. for their meet, which begins on Thursday. The Seminoles will send seven athletes in senior Mateo De Angulo, juniors Mark Weber, Trice Bailey, David Sander, sophomores Paul Murray, Tom Neubacher and freshman Juan Sequera.
