Northwestern junior Olivia Rosendahl won the platform diving title for the second year in a row with 346.15 points. Rosendahl’s win last year was the first ever for Northwestern Women’s Swimming and Diving, and she successfully defended her title in 2018 ahead of Texas’ Samantha Bromberg (335.30).

The impressive part? Northwestern doesn’t have a tower at their home pool.

That is like a swimmer winning an Olympic gold medal without having a 50m pool to train in.

UCLA’s Eloise Belanger (300.65), Purdue’s Lexi Vincent (297.90), Ohio State’s Lara Tarvit (296.80), Hawaii’s Madison Sthamann (292.60), Indiana’s Jessica Parratto (291.35) and Nebraska’s Abigail Knapton (286.15) also competed in the top eight championship final.
