LOS ANGELES - Two Golden Bears reached the platform final on the last day of the Bruin Diving Invitational on Sunday, as California's Sara-Lina Boushakra took seventh place and Kahley Rowell finished eighth at UCLA's Spieker Aquatics Center.

Boushakra, a freshman, posted a score of 453.55, while Rowell - a junior who earned All-America status on the platform last season - compiled a score of 451.45 to close out Cal's stay in L.A. In the preliminary round, Rowell took sixth (239.65) and Boushakra was eighth (224.35).

In the three-meter springboard final on Jan. 11, Boushakra also notched Cal's top finish, taking 17th place.

The fourth-ranked Cal women's swimming and diving team (4-0, 1-0 in the Pac-12) returns to conference action when it takes on No. 6 Arizona on Jan. 25 in Tucson, Ariz. The dual meet will mark the two-time defending NCAA champions' first appearance on the Pac-12 Networks.
