    ATHENS, Ga. -- Northwestern's two representatives at the 2006 NCAA Women's Swimming & Diving Championships turned in great performances during the opening day of competition Thursday.

    Freshman diver Chelsea Davis (Columbus, Ohio/Worthington Kilbourne) became Northwestern's first-ever diving All-American, finishing 14th on the 1-meter board with a score of 282.35. She earned three points for the 'Cats with her finish.

    Sophomore Andrea Hupman (Lawrenceville, Ga./Brookwood) competed in the 50 free Thursday, jumping from her 28th seed to an 18th-place tie during preliminary competition with a personal-best 22.87 in the prelims.

    "We are so proud of Chelsea earning an All-America honor in her first event at the NCAA Championships," NU head coach Jimmy Tierney said. "Andrea had a great swim in the 50 free, too. Out of the 76 swimmers in the event, she was one of only 17 to lower her seed time. Today's peformances will pump us up going into the rest of the meet."

    Davis returns to action tomorrow, Friday, March 17, in the 3-meter event. Hupman will swim the 200 free.
