Hayhurst sweeps regional diving finals, Nordin finishes ninth
SAN ANTONIO – The NCAA Region 2 Diving Championships concluded earlier today from Palo Alto College and resulted in a repeat regional championship for senior Sarah Hayhurst (Newburgh, Ind.) and the close of a great career for senior Brad Nordin (Paintsville, Ky.).
In the women's 3m competition, Hayhurst closed her day with a flourish, scoring over 50 points on three of her last four dives to finish with 479.90 points. Today's performance was the seventh regional championship for Hayhurst out of eight possible ones in her storied career and her third on the 3m board.
In the men's 1m competition, Nordin wrapped up his stellar career as the two-time Southern Athletic Association Men's Diver of the Year and Centre soccer player posted his second consecutive ninth place finish with 346.05 points.
With her wins at this weekend's regionals, Hayhurst automatically qualifies for the NCAA Championships, which will take place in Indianapolis on Mar. 20-24.
