Casey Matthews, a junior diver from New Jersey, won the consolation final yesterday in the 1-meter event at the NCAA Championships here in Indianapolis. Tonight, she did one better. she gave Purdue another National Championship by winning the 3-meter event.

In the preliminaries earlier in the day she finished with the highest score at 374.15 and topped it in the night final. Her 386.55 in the final round was almost nine points better than Haley Casper of Arizona State. She also gained Purdue 20 points in the team competition, moving Purdue into 16th place in the team standings with 44 points.
