UCLA’s Maria Polyakova takes home Pac-12 Women’s Diver of the Year honors


UCLA’s Maria Polyakova named the Pac-12 Women’s Diver of the Year for the second time of her career after winning two Pac-12 crowns at the conference championships. The senior won the 1-meter (335.70) and 3-meter (350.70) springboards for her third and fourth career titles at the championships to earn Pac-12 Diver of the Meet, as voted on by the league coaches. Polyakova became the first-ever UCLA diver to win an individual NCAA Championship after taking home the 3-meter crown (396.00) for the program’s first individual title since Annette Salmeen won the 200-yard butterfly in 1996.
