2016-17 (Outlook)
All-American Anna Filipcic takes aim at a top-eight national finish and a Big Ten individual championship for the Huskers in 2016-17. The senior from Omaha, Neb., took 10th in the one-meter dive at the 2016 NCAA Championships after earning a runner-up finish in the event at the Big Ten Championships. Filipcic hopes for her best season in the well, in the classroom and in the community as a senior. Filipcic is a two-time Big Ten Distinguished Scholar and academic All-Big Ten selection, as well as a three-time member of the Tom Osborne Citizenship Team.

2015-16 (Junior)
Filipcic earned All-America honors in the diving well for the Huskers, finishing 10th in the one-meter diving competition at the 2016 NCAA Championships to become Nebraska’s first All-American since Lauren Bailey in 2006. Filipcic’s honorable-mention All-America performance gave Nebraska a 39th-place team finish, which was also the Huskers’ best team finish at the championships since 2006. For the season, Filipcic amassed 15 victories, while racking up 19 top-five finishes in the well. She notched a career-best 338.25 points to finish as the one-meter runner-up at the 2016 Big Ten Championships. She added a school-record three-meter total of 359.03 to earn a victory in Nebraska’s dual win over Illinois. She added a ninth-place finish (337.45) on the three-meter board at the Big Ten Championships. In her third appearance at the NCAA Championships, Filipcic produced a 310.60 to take 10th in the one-meter dive. She added a 47th-place finish in the three meter with 246.30 points, despite taking a zero after hitting the board on her second dive. She led the field after her opening dive of the three-meter competition. Filipcic continued to excel in the classroom as a junior, claiming recognition as a Big Ten Distinguished Scholar while also earning academic All-Big Ten honors for the second consecutive year. She also claimed her third spot on the Tom Osborne Citizenship Team.

2014-15 (Sophomore)
Filipcic continued to dominate in the diving well during her sophomore campaign, notching 19 top-five finishes, including 11 victories. Filipcic also set then-career bests at the Big Ten Championships, with scores of 329.50 in the one meter and 356.75 in the three meter, good enough to earn third place in both events. Filipcic also qualified for the NCAA Championships for a second consecutive year. At nationals, Filipcic earned 21st in the one meter and 20th in the three meter. A star in the classroom, Filipcic earned academic All-Big Ten honors before being named a Big Ten Distinguished Scholar in 2015.

2013-14 (Freshman)
Filipcic exploded onto the scene in her first year diving for the Huskers. She recorded 16 top-five performances, including nine victories. Filipcic set then-career bests at the Big Ten Championships, with scores of 307.65 to finish 10th in the one-meter and 348.50 to finish ninth in the three-meter. As a freshman, Filipcic was the only Husker to qualify for the 2014 NCAA Championships. She was the first Husker diver to qualify for the NCAA Championships since 2005. Filipcic finished 22nd at the NCAA Championships on both the one-meter and three-meter boards. She also got off to a strong start in the classroom by earning spots on the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll in the fall and spring of 2013-14.
