Several former Hoosier divers in U.S. Olympic Trial finals

Former Hoosier diver and 2008 Olympian Christina Loukas and partner Kassidy Cook are in second place of the women’s three-meter synchronized event at the 2012 USA Diving Olympic Trials in Federal Way, Wash.

Loukas and Cook recorded a score of 631.29 on Monday at the Weyerhauser Aquatic Center. The score was just 6.51 points behind leaders Abby Johnston and Kelci Braynt.

The final round takes place Thursday with everything on the line for each pair of divers. The top scoring pair will earn the lone U.S. spot at the 2012 London Summer Olympics.

Gabby Agostino and Logan Kline, also former Hoosiers, placed sixth with a score of 490.20 and will dive in Thursday’s finals. 

Scores at the Trials are cumulative, meaning preliminary, semifinal and final round scores all count toward determining which pair will represent the U.S.

The Trials continue through June 24.
