MOSCOW, Idaho Boise State University diver Jennifer Dorling improved her diving scores Friday, leading a contingent of Broncos improving times against arch-rival University of Idaho.
With a dive of 241.20 against the Vandals, the senior from Olympia, Wash., competing in competitive diving for the first time in her life, continues to improve her scores, impressing her coaches.
“I am truly amazed at where she currently is ability-wise,” Bronco diving coach CJ Hardy said. “She didn’t have a single dive four months ago, and to be at this level so quickly is uncanny. She has achieved so much through sheer desire and determination.”
Although the Broncos were outscored 170-49, with 18 points coming from Dorling, head coach Kristin Hill is enjoying what the has witnessed thus far this season.
“We set a number of season best times tonight, which is a great thing heading into the conference championships,” Hill said. “That has been our focus all season long, and I am proud of how this group of women have improved all year.”
Two of the season-best times came from sophomore Holly Chatelain, who posted school records in both the 1,000-yard freestyle (12:21.60) and the 400 IM (5:21.88).
The Broncos remain on the Palouse for one more dual this weekend, swimming the Cougars of Washington State University, Saturday at 11:00 a.m. (PT), at Gibb Pool.
