Nov. 18, 2014 BOISE, Idaho -
Boise State swimming and diving head coach Kristin Hill and head diving coach John Lynch announced the signing of diver Cassidy Bose
(Mt. Pleasant, Wis./J.I. Case HS) to a National Letter of Intent Tuesday.
"We knew right away that Cassidy would be a great fit for our team," said Lynch. "She is going to be able to contribute right away and has a ton of upward potential. We are all very excited that Cassidy is going to be a Bronco diver next year."
Bose, the lone diver among the octet, is a 2014 NISCA All-American and USA Diving Age Group National qualifier at J.I. Case High School. Additionally, Bose is a two-time USA Diving Age Group Zone qualifier (2012, 2014). She has thrice scored at the Wisconsin state championships with top-five finishes in each of the past two seasons (second in 2013, fifth in 2012), and won Southeast Conference and sectional titles in 2013. At the end of that junior year she was named county athlete of the year.
Off the diving board, Bose is a two-year member of the National Honor Society and has won three academic letters at J.I. Case.
"Boise immediately felt like home to me. The university's surroundings are absolutely beautiful and the campus has a great community feeling," Bose said. "[Head diving coach] John [Lynch], Kristin, and the girls are clearly a family in and out of the pool and they wasted no time making me feel like part of it. I was also impressed with the team's level of academic success, and I am confident that Boise State is a place where I will thrive athletically, academically and personally."
