Feb. 1, 2012

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - San Diego State senior Kristen Meier has earned Diver of the Week honors for their performances from Jan. 23-30, 2012. It is Meier's sixth weekly honor of the season and the 10th of her two-year Aztec career.

Meier, from Walden, N.Y., took first place in the 1-meter and 3-meter springboard events along with the platform dive at the Falcon Diving Invitational on Jan. 27-28 at the Air Force Academy. Meier recorded NCAA Zone qualifying marks with a 307.50 in the 1-meter, a 343.05 in the 3-meter and a 239.55 off of the platform.

Her platform and 3-meter scores last weekend both rank as the fourth-highest in the Mountain West this season while her mark on the 1-meter board ranks sixth.

Meier finished the regular season with 19 individual wins including 15 first-place finishes during dual meets and four at invitational events.

Last weekend marked the final competition of the regular season for the Aztec swimmers and divers, who will now look forward to the Mountain West Championships to be held Feb. 22-25 in Oklahoma City.
