Year: Freshman
City/State: Broomfield, Colo.
High School: Broomfield


2008-09 Season Outlook

Tia Claps was invited to walk on at Nebraska and hopes to immediately contribute to the diving team as a freshman. The Huskers only return two divers from a year ago, so Claps and fellow freshman D’Arcy Schmidt will be thrown into the mix right away. Claps has plenty of talent and experience, closing her high school career at Broomfield (Colo.) as its all-time diving leader.



Claps was a two-time state qualifier at Broomfield High School in Colorado. She left the school as its all-time diving leader. Claps was a runner-up in the three meter springboard and had a third-place finish in the one-meter dive at the State Games of America, and was an AAU national qualifier on the one-meter tower. Claps dove at the Mile High Dive Club in Denver, where the team was a three-time Sagebrush and three-time Region Six champion. An academic All-America selection, Claps also lettered in track and gymnastics in addition to swimming and diving in high school.



Tia was born on Dec. 12, 1989, in Denver, Colo. She is the daughter of Don and Cindy Claps, and has one brother, Chris. Tia has not declared a major at Nebraska.
