Burke Second, Third at Nationals

2nd in 3-Meter, 3rd in 1-Meter

IOWA CITY, IOWA-- Amanda Burke ’10 placed second and third at the AT&T National Diving Championships last week.

Burke placed second in the 3-meter and third in the 1-meter dive.

“It is good practice competing and it is less stressful,” said Burke, a member of the U.S. Olympic Performance Squad who won the 1-meter at the 2011 Nationals.

She did not compete in her primary event, synchronized 3-meter dive.

In the 3-meter synchro she recently placed seventh in the world at the FINA World Aquatic Championships in Barcelona, Spain.

Earlier this summer Burke was in Fort Lauderdale for the AT&T Grand Prix meet, an international meet that she qualified for last summer by placing in the top two at the National Championships.  At the Grand Prix Burke was the only female springboard diver from the US to make the finals and finish at the top of this international field.  At the competition which represented 20 different countries from around the world, Burke finished fifth out of 22 athletes in her event. 

In June of 2012 Burke and her former partner, Summer Allman, placed third in the finals of the 3-meter Synchronized Springboard dive at the US Olympic Team Trials. “Summer retired to have a baby,” Burke said.

Burke is from Richboro, PA and is a 2005 graduate of William Tennent High School.  As a senior at Rider Burke was the Eastern College Athletic Conference Champion and the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Champion in both the one-meter and the three-meter dives, earning Diver of the Year honors at both championships while leading Rider to the MAAC Title.

Burke owns all five Rider team diving records and all four Rider Pool diving records, as well as both MAAC diving records.

In August, 2011 Burke qualified for the Olympic Trials in two events, by placing second in three-meter synchronized dive and sixth in the three-meter dive at the U. S. National Diving Championships, held at UCLA.
