Diving is being reinstated to the Bowling Green State University swimming program.
A coach will be hired this season with divers becoming part of the team for the 214-15 season.
“Head coach Petra Martin has developed a championship caliber program and deserves the resources necessary for reaching our goal of winning a MAC (Mid-American Conference) championship,” said Chris Kingston, the athletics director at BGSU. “Petra is a results-oriented leader who demands excellence in the classroom as well as the pool. The combination of the team’s cumulative GPA of 3.42 and the competitive improvements over the past few seasons has not gone unnoticed.
‘‘We are pleased to have divers join the talented young ladies who currently swim for Falcon athletics and look forward to their future achievements at both the MAC and NCAA championships.”
Since last fielding a team in 2009, the Falcons have been at a competitive disadvantage by not having the opportunity to score points in diving.
“Our team has been improving rapidly and having a strong diving program is crucial for our success in the MAC and on a national level,” Martin said. “We have been the only school in the conference without a diving program, and we can’t wait to see what we can do with this fantastic addition.
‘‘I am thrilled to start the process of incorporating the diving portion of our program into what we already have and achieve some great things together.”
