BATON ROUGE – Junior Alex Bettridge has been named the Southeastern Conference Diver of the Week following her sweep of the 1-meter and 3-meter dives against Tulane.
“This is great recognition for Alex,” LSU diving coach Doug Shaffer said. “She has been working very hard and with excellent focus. We’ve been working on her consistency and I’m happy to see such early success.”
Bettridge posted season-high scores of 304.73 on the 1-meter board and 311.70 on the 3-meter. Her 304.73 on the 1-meter board ranks third highest in the SEC while her 3-meter finish is seventh best in the league. Her score in the 1-meter diving event is also enough for eighth all time in LSU women’s diving history.
The Lady Tigers take the week off before traveling to South Carolina for their first road dual meet of the season against the Gamecocks Saturday, Nov. 9.
