Diving Signs Karina Silva To National Letter-of-Intent

April 14, 2009

Diving coach Tom Stebbins has announced the signing of Karina Silva to a National Letter-of-Intent. Silva, from Miami, FL, will transfer into UCLA in the fall.

Silva graduated from Keystone National HS and currently attends Miami Dade College.

"Karina is a great diver and we are so excited to have her joining the Bruin dive team in the Fall," said Stebbins.
