CAREER: One of the NCAA's top divers and a former Olympian, Haley Ishimatsu, younger sister of former Trojan and NCAA champion Victoria Ishimatsu, completed her USC career as a two-time NCAA champion, a four-time All-American first teamer and a four-time Pac-12 individual champion. She was a two-time CoSIDA Capital One Academic All-American (first team in 2015, second team in 2014) and a two-time Pac-12 All-Academic first team selection (2014-15). Ishimatsu, who scored in seven career NCAA events, was a three-time Pac-12 champion on platform and won once on 3-meter.
2015: Ishimatsu, as a 2015 senior, earned her third straight All-American first team honor with a second-place on platform (339.65) at the 2015 NCAA Championships. She also was a 'B' finalist on 3-meter, (15th, 320.55), and 1-meter (16th, 288.05). She became the first Pac-12 woman to win the platform three straight years and only the second to win it three times overall when she captured the title with 368.75 points at the 2015 Pac-12 Championships. She was also fifth on 3-meter (334.65) and sixth on 1-meter (322.50). A semifinalist for the 2014 AAU Sullivan Award, Ishimatsu was a 2015 CoSIDA Capital One Academic All-American first teamer and earned her second consecutive Pac-12 All-Academic first team and Capitol One Academic All-American All-District 8 At-Large team honors. She was the 2015 Pac-12 Women's Swimming and Diving Scholar Athlete of the Year and was a Pac-12 Postgraduate Scholarship winner.
2014: Ishimatsu, the 2014 Pac-12 Women's Diver of the Year, became the first NCAA woman to repeat as an NCAA platform champion since 1992-93 when she won the event at the 2014 NCAA Championships with 360.15 points (no NCAA woman has won it three straight times). Unlike her run-away title in 2013, the 2014 competition was a tighter affair. She needed 66 points on her final dive to secure the title and came through with 81.60. She also earned her first All-American honor on 1-meter with a sixth-place finish (314.65) and scored for the first time on 3-meter with a 13th-place finish (347.60). Her NCAA success followed springboard wins at the 2014 NCAA Zone E Championships and titles on 3-meter (347.25) and platform (340.20) at the 2014 Pac-12 Championships. Her Pac-12 platform title was her second straight conference crown on the board and she set a Pac-12 record in the process. She was third on 1-meter (320.70). She earned Pac-12 All-Academic first team honors with a 3.61 GPA in sociology. She was also named to CoSIDA's 2014 Capital One Academic All-American second team.
2013: Ishimatsu, who transferred to USC from Duke, began her Trojan career with a bang by setting a NCAA point record (396.75) en route to first place on platform at the 2013 NCAA Championships as a sophomore. She won the title by a whopping 68.15 points, leading for most of the competition. She just missed scoring on 1-meter, finishing 17th (288.95) and was also 21st on 3-meter (302.90) ... Her win on platform was set up by a great performance at the 2013 NCAA Zone E Championships, where she used her first perfect 10 dive to win the event. She recorded the perfect dive on a back 3 1/2 somersault tuck that registered 10s with all seven judges. It was worth 99 points and gave her a lead so big that she could have skipped her last dive and still won by 60 points. She also won the 1-meter with a 612.25 ... She won her first conference title at the 2013 Pac-12 Championships, claiming first on platform with 310.35 points. She was also second on 1-meter (314.05) and fourth on 3-meter (311.85) and earned Women's Diver of the Meet honors.
2012: Before joining the Trojans, Haley, battling injuries, competed at the 2012 U.S. Olympic Trials on platform, taking fourth ... She won the platform title at the 2012 USA Diving Winter Nationals earlier in the year, her fourth career national title. She was also second on synchro platform.
