Maura Sticco-Ivins ’18 reached new heights at the 2017 NCAA Division III Swimming Diving Championships in Shenandoah, Texas, in March. Previously the national champion in 3-meter diving from 2015, she swept the 2017 competition, claiming both the 3-meter and 1-meter titles. This put Sticco-Ivins in a class by herself as the only three-time national champion in College history. She also came home with the 2017 Women’s Diver of the Year award from the College Swimming and Diving Coaches Association of America.
