CSCAA Names Lexi Tenenbaum NCAA Division I Diver of the Year

The Collegiate Swim Coaches’ Association of America (CSCAA) has named Minnesota senior Lexi Tenenbaum the 2017 NCAA Division I Diver of the Year.

Tenenbaum finished 13th on the 1-meter, 4th on the 3-meter, and 7th on the platform. That means that among an elite Minnesota diving crew that had 1 NCAA title, 1 national runner-up, and 7 total All-America awards, Tenenbaum was the only one to score in, or even compete in, all 3 diving events.

She scored a total of 31 points for Minnesota, after having scored just 3 in her previous 3 NCAA seasons combined. Her previous high finish on the 3 meter was 34th at last year’s NCAA Championships.

The award is called “Diver of the Year,” though it is based on only the results of the NCAA Championships.

It’s a testament to Wenbo and typical for taking no-names to exceptional heights
