A pair of Western Kentucky divers look to qualify for the NCAA Championships by participating in the three-day NCAA Zone C Diving Championships starting today at the Boilermaker Aquatic Center at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Ind.
WKU senior Caitlin Dean and freshman Giorgi Meyer hope to advance to the NCAAs. Dean will be one of 55 women divers, while Meyer is one of 39 competing on the men’s side. The top 18 finishers in the springboard prelims and the top 12 in the platform prelims advance to the championship rounds, from which the divers qualify for the NCAA Championships.
Dean placed second on both boards at the Sun Belt Conference Championships, including posting a school-record 299.50 on the three-meter. At the Conference USA Men’s Invitational, Meyer came in sixth and eighth place on the one and three-meter boards, respectively.
