Transcript u H has dominated Conference USA women's diving competitions since the organization of the league a decade ago. This success has been the result, in part, of a major recruiting edge. UH has a tradition of seeking out international talent and a reputation for producing Olympic-quality athletes. Excluding UH, no other diver in the conference was recruited outside the United States. The 2004-05 UH diving roster included natives of Mexico City, Berlin and Moscow. Jane Figueiredo, who hales from Zimbabwe, has spent 15 seasons at UH and has assembled rosters of athletes from Europe, Asia, North and South America. Figueiredo makes regular trips to Europe to coach divers and scout. She has coached in the European Championships and regularly coaches in the Olympics. She led the Russian teams in Athens in 2004 and Sydney in 2000 and coached for Great Britain in Atlanta in 1996. The international diving talent lured to UH in the past decade has been staggering. UH divers have gone on to success in Europe and gold medal statuses in the Olympics. Figueiredo coached a UH alumna, Yulia Pakhalina, to a gold medal in the women's 3-meter synchronized diving at the Sydney Games. On the strength of her recruiting and molding of athletes, Figueirdo has been named C-USA Diving Coach of the Year six consecutive seasons (including 2004-05), and she was honored as the NCAA Coach of the Year in 2001 and 2003. UH diving has developed a strong international reputation and an air of invincibility within C-USA. Figueiredo and UH hosted the 2005 conference championship at the Campus Recreation and Wellness Center Natatorium in February. In the platform competition, Azul Almazan (512) dwarfed the point totals of the second- and third-place finishers: Rachel Gitelson and Stephanie Mannella, both Cougar standouts. (Continued on p. 118) ane Figueiredo's diving program has benefited from a remarkable international recruiting record. In 2004-05 the margin between the Cougars and the rest of C-USA grew, with athletes from Europe and Central America helping UH claim national honors. Story by Mark Smith 116
