GRINNELL, Iowa – Megan Thai (Alhambra, Calif.) wrapped up her trip to Iowa Saturday placing 8th on the 1-Meter.
Fifteen divers took part in the event, which included six from the Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC). Thai finished 8th with a score of 355.30.
Despite having the 1-Meter not be her top event, Thai was able to pick up four head-to-head wins during the regular season against Pomona-Pitzer, Occidental College, University of Redlands, and California Lutheran University. She then finished 5th overall at the SCIAC Championships.
Thai has unofficially qualified for the NCAA Division III National Championships, set for March 20 in Greensboro, N.C., but the official qualifiers won't be released until Monday.
