Lobos Fall Short During First Day of AT&T National Championships

Aug. 14, 2012

GREENSBORO, N.C. - For a coach and his squad of divers that are used to success, day one of the AT&T National Championships was a bit of a letdown. The first day of competition, which featured the 1-meter springboard event, saw all three Lobos in attendance; Michole Timm, Megan Harper and Ashlee Erickson fail to make it to the finals round.

In order for the divers from New Mexico to move on to the championship round, they would have had to finished in the top eight, and unfortunately they were not able to do so. Former Lobo Ashlee Erickson claimed the highest finish for UNM coming in 15th place with a quarterfinal round score of 235.00. Michole Timm and Megan Harper came in 19th and 20th with scores of 216.30 and 210.65, respectively.

The Lobos will have one day to rest and refocus themselves before competing in the 3-meter springboard event.
