While a portion of the swim team is down in Texas for Winter Nationals, Columbia women’s diving will head out to Providence, R.I. for the Brown Invitational this weekend. Though most of the other six teams there will be competing for first place with full swim and dive squads, Columbia divers will use the meet to gain competitive experience. Columbia diving has had a stellar start to its season, winning the diving portion of the dual meet losses to Harvard and Yale. In the latter, senior Kristin Hehir made an NCAA-qualifying cut in the 1m event with a score of 290.85.
Four seniors reflect on their time at Columbia, and what it means to be leaving these years—and NYC—behind.
