CLEMSON, SC - On Wednesday, Clemson Head Diving Coach Leslie Hasselbach Adams announced the signing of Sarah Braun during the fall signing period.
"Sarah Braun is exactly the type of student-athlete I want in our women's diving program," Hasselbach Adams said. "She has received excellent coaching from Joe Lyons at the Tualatin Hills Dive Club of Beaverton and is a top-ranked prospect. It is a tribute to Clemson that Sarah chose to continue her academic and athletic career with the Tigers. I am looking forward to working with this amazing young lady.
"Braun is a champion who will set a standard for future Clemson divers."
A Beaverton, OR native, Braun was crowned U.S. Diving Age Group National Champion in the three-meter springboard over the summer.
