Olesiak breaks school

AUSTIN HAMM Sports Editor

 For her performance against Northern Iowa that saw her set a school record, South Dakota State Women’s Diver Olivia Olesiak is this week’s Collegian Sports Athlete of the Week.

A native of Wyoming, Minnesota, Olesiak set a school record en route to victory in the 1-meter competition with a score of 256.88 points. Her mark ranks second in the Summit League this season, while her score of 245.18 on the 3-meter board was good for a runner-up finish in the meet and is third among league divers this season.

Olesiak was also named the Summit League Diver of the Week for the performance. It was her fourth weekly conference award of her career.

Olesiak and the rest of the Jackrabbit women’s swim and dive squad return to action on Saturday, Oct. 31, at Nebraska.
