Platform Diving Preview

Platform Diving
Amanda Burnett, from Glendale, Ariz., looks to take another big step forward in 2010-11 after adapting well to the platform in 2009-10. She became the first Bronco to earn WAC Diver of the Week (Jan. 23-31) and the first Bronco to reach the finals at the conference championships. She recorded an eighth-place finish on the platform to help Boise State to the WAC Championship.

Coach Legler's Take: "Platform is something we don't get to practice often, but is still something we really focus on. We make it a point to compete in it, and make it a part of our training when possible. Tower is definitely Amanda's best event. Being a former gymnast, she has real fast muscles that make her a good tower diver. Ciera doesn't have much platform experience, but that will change. She will be able to transition to platform pretty easily. As Lexi and Tana get more comfortable at the platform they will see their scores rise, and we will definitely benefit from that."
