Lobo diving signs local athlete to National Letter of Intent
May 1, 2012
ALBUEQUERQUE, N.M. -The University of New Mexico diving coach Abel Sanchez announced the signing of Courtney Brooks to a national letter of intent.
Brooks is the only signee for Coach Sanchez during this the 2012 signing period.
Brooks will be graduating from Manzano High School this spring with a grade point average (GPA) of over 4.0. She is a three-time New Mexico State diving champion who also owns all the Albuquerque public school records in diving. She is ranked third among divers in the NM 5A class of 2012.
"I think Courtney will be a great addition to our team," said Sanchez. "She's one of our locals and I expect great things from her."
Sanchez will only be losing one diver, Ashlee Erickson, to graduation this spring; and while losing the services of a two-time Mountain West diving champion may hurt, Sanchez's squad is deep and extremely talented. Aubrey Bush, who medically redshirted her senior year due to injuries, will return along with Melissa Bollig, Megan Harper, Laura Lee Thomas and Michole Timm.
