March 13, 2005


HOLLAND, Mich. - Freshman Doria Holbrook became just the second athlete and the first diver in the history of the MIT swimming and diving program to win a national title after taking first overall in three-meter diving at the NCAA Division III Women's Swimming and Diving Championships.


Holbrook totaled a score of 453.40 in the three-meter diving competition, easily outpacing second-place Kate Shaw of Amherst College (435.80). Her win placed her along side Yvonne Grierson, who won multiple events at the 1990 championship. After the meet, Holbrook was named NCAA Diver of the Meet, while head diving coach Brad Snodgrass was named NCAA Diving Coach of the Year.


Holbrook earned two All-America honors over the weekend, finishing third overall in one-meter diving. Serving as MIT's lone national representative, she totaled 36 points en route to 25th out of 53 in the team standings.
