Senior diver Marisa Samaniego capped off her Bruin career with an All-American performance on three-meter at the 2009 NCAA Swimming & Diving Championships in College Station, TX on Friday to lead the Bruins.

Samaniego was ninth after the prelim/quarterfinal rounds and just under one point shy of the championship final. In the console final, the senior finished 16th with a score of 291.10 to earn All-America Honorable Mention accolades.

She was also the Pac-10 Newcomer of the Year as a freshman in 2006.

Senior Tess Schofield finished 35th on three-meter with a score of 225.30.

On Thursday, Samaniego competed on the one-meter springboard and finished 24th overall (262.70).
