Emma Ivory-Ganja led the Bruin divers on the final day of the Wildcat Invitational in Tucson as the frosh placed third overall. She was the second-best collegiate diver on tower as post-collegiate athletes were also competing.
Ivory Ganja posted a score of 229.85 on Sunday. Laura Winn, who graduated in June of 2011 and is training for the U.S. Olympic Trials, finished second with a score of 236.65.
