Jacobson went 6-0 in the three conference diving meets in the first season of diving for the SBCC women.

Jacobson totaled 230.70 to win the 1-meter competition and teammate Ashley Dettmann was second at 207.15. Stephanie Rodriguez of L.A. Pierce placed third with 151.20 points.

“Gina had two really incredible dives, scoring 7½ and 8’s on her inward 1½ and back pike,” said Vaquero coach Trish Salvatore. “They were beautifully executed."

“Ashley really worked hard this past week and scored high marks on her inward 1½ and her front 1½.”

In the 3-meter springboard, Jacobson won with 235.50 points. Dettman was second with 204.40 and Rodriguez took third with 123.00.

“Gina upped her degree-of-difficulty and has really risen to meet the challenge, scoring 7 and 7½ on her inward 1½ and her forward 2½. She is amazing to watch.”

“On three of Ashley’s dives, she scored 7 and 7½’s. I was so proud of her because last week she struggled but now she is starting to get the hang of it. I could not be prouder as both our divers are incredible athletes and easy to coach.”

The Vaquero divers return to action on Friday, April 7 in the prestigious Pasadena Invitational.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
