The Wallingford, Conn. native opened up the week with an impressive performance at NYU on Wednesday afternoon. On the one-meter board, Nelson placed first with her national qualifying mark of 271.88 and recorded a third-place finish on the three-meter with a mark of 232.20.
Over the weekend in a tri-meet with conference-rivals Coast Guard and MIT, Nelson once again recorded national qualifying marks on both boards. In a field that featured some of the top divers in the country, including MIT's two-time national champion Doria Holbrook, Nelson was outstanding. Placing first in the one-meter with a 262.20, she also finished third in three-meter with a score of 263.90.
Nelson and the Pride return to action on Saturday when they play host to Williams College at 1:00 pm.
