USC Sweeps Men's, Women's Platform Diving at Pac-10s -- March 3, 2003

FEDERAL WAY, Wash., March 2. USC swept the men's and women's 10-meter platform events on the final day of competition at the 2003 Pacific-10 Men's Diving Championships, held at the King County Aquatics Center in Federal Way, Washington.

USC's Ray Vincent won the men's event with his score of 503.85, denying ASU freshman Joona Puhakka's bid for a sweep of all three diving contests. Puhakka finished third off the platform with 456.40 points, three points behind Arizona's Josh Anderson, who was second (459.80).

USC's Blythe Hartley, a sophomore, completed her sweep of the women's diving events here. Hartley, the 2002 NCAA Women's Diver of the Year who won the 1-meter and 3-meter springboard earlier, completed the Pac-10 sweep by winning the platform with 489.20 points.

Hartley became only the second Pac-10 woman ever to sweep all three events. The first was Stanford's Katie Connors in 1988. Junior Nicci Fusaro posted her second second-place finish of the meet with 434.85 in the platform. UCLA's Regan Gosnell was third.

USC has won at least one Pac-10 diving event eight years in a row.
