Loukas takes 2 titles at USA National Championship

Seven IU women’s divers traveled to Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., this week to compete in the Speedo USA Diving National Championships, where senior Christina Loukas’ season-long trend of dominance continued. 

Loukas took national titles in the individual 1-meter springboard and the synchronized 3-meter springboard, where she paired with Purdue’s Amanda Miller. Loukas now has four USA Diving championships. 

“It’s good to see her continuing to improve and do things better than she did at the beginning of the season,” diving coach Jeff Huber said.

Loukas, who won the NCAA Championship in the three-meter springboard, placed third in the event this weekend. 

Although she said she is pleased with her two titles, Loukas said she has more work to do.

“I really just want to continue what I’ve been working on for the past couple months,” Loukas said.

Other notable Hoosier performances included two fourth-place finishes by junior Brittney Feldman on the 1- and 3-meter springboards as well as junior Amy Korthauer’s sixth-place platform finish.
