Emma Berry won three gold medals at the WAC last year, while Emma Friesen captured the 1-meter diving and Raquel Bartlow was second in the 3-meter and platform. All three are juniors this season. Friesen also won the 1-meter at the NCAA Championship,
Earlier this month Friesen, from North Vancouver, finished fourth on the 1-meter and fifth on the 3-meter at the Canadian Winter Senior National Championships. She was named to the Canadian National Diving Team following her performance.
