WALNUT CREEK, Calif. ?- Senior Tiffany Manning has been named Pac-10 Women’s Diver of the Month for October, Commissioner Tom Hansen announced Thursday, Dec. 1.
Manning, a native of Mission Viejo, Calif., finished first in both springboard events during Arizona’s season-opening dual meet against Wisconsin and Penn State. She scored 212.95 points in the one-meter event, before winning the three-meter event with 314.80 points.
Manning returned to the diving well for the 2005-06 season after using a medical redshirt last season due to a shoulder dislocation.
She competed at the 2001 Junior World Championships and was named an All-American during all four seasons at Capistrano High School.
This is the first monthly honor for Manning and Arizona’s first Diver of the Month all-time.
