Meghan Bartlett (Johnstown, N.Y./Johnstown) finished in third place in the 3-meter diving competition at the Regional Meet at Cortland on Saturday. Bartlett was 0.70 from the second-place competitor and just 5.3 points from first place.

Bartlett's 11-dive total was 444.15. She was edged out by Anna Belson of Ithaca College who finished at 444.85. Miranda Fergus of Cortland won the competition with a score of 459.45.

Samantha Kowalewski (Cowlesville/Attica) and Julie Coomer (East Aurora/Iroquois) also participated, finishing ninth and eighteenth, respectively. Kowalewski scored a 409.45, and Coomer turned in a 366.00.

A day earlier, Bartlett finished in fifth off the 1-meter board. With her third-place finish Saturday, Bartlett is guaranteed a spot in the NCAA Division III Championships which will be held March 16-19 in Greensboro, N.C.

A year ago, Bartlett had a successful trip to the Championships held in Shenandoah, Texas. She earned All American status off both boards. She was sixth nationally off the 3-meter, and seventh off the 1-meter.
