Schofield Notches Win on Platform to Wrap Up Competition at Hoosierland Invite

Nov. 17, 2007


Junior Tess Schofield wrapped up the Bruins' competition at the Hoosierland Invitational in Bloomington, IN with a win as the All-American won the tower title on Saturday. Schofield posted a score of 231.25, winning by almost six points.

It was the second tower win of the season for Schofield after having won the platform crown at the Trojan Invite earlier in the season. It was just the second time this season she had competed on tower.

Junior Brittany Hill (201.60) and freshman Morgan Erpenbeck (180.60) finished seventh and eighth, respectively. Erpenbeck's score was a season-best.

The Bruins had a very successful trip to Indiana as Schofield and Marisa Samaniego posted wins, while several women posted season or lifetime-best scores during the meet.

"I'm happy with how the weekend went overall, and I"m especially happy for Marisa and Tess to come out with wins," said dive coach Tom Stebbins. "As a group, we need to be more consistent and we will spend a good chunk of time working on that in the coming months."

This weekend's competition wraps up the 2007 portion of the dive schedule as they will be off until January.
