Immaculate Heart alumna wins national diving title
Olivia Rosendahl, an Immaculate Heart High School alumna and junior at Northwestern University, won the senior women’s 10-meter platform title last week at the USA Diving National Championships.
During finals last Friday for platform diving at the McCorkle Aquatics Center in Columbus, Ohio, Rosendahl scored 71.4 on her last dive – a reverse two-and-a-half somersault tuck – to move ahead of former Olympian Laura Wilkinson.
In March, Rosendahl won the NCAA women’s 10-meter diving title for Northwestern University at the NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships. Her overall top-eight performance at that competition gained her NCAA All-American recognition.
Rosendahl, a member of Immaculate Heart’s class of 2015, capped her diving career at the school by earning Immaculate Heart its first state title in diving. Although she is a disciplined athlete, Rosendahl’s life does not revolve entirely around diving. Earlier this summer, she spent weeks working with underprivileged children in Vietnam. Rosendahl’s parents are Daniel Rosendahl and Dr. Anne Kosco, of Los Angeles.
Immaculate Heart is an all-girls Catholic school founded in 1906 at the corner of Western and Franklin Avenues. For information, call (323)461-3651, or visit immaculateheart.org.
