MEN’S DIVER OF THE WEEK | FELIX LAFORTUNE | UIC | SENIOR | GATINEAU, CANADA.

Felix Lafortune won the three-meter diving crown at the House of Champions Invitational.  He scored 333.35 in the prelims, and followed that up with 322.45 in the finals, both times exceeding the NCAA Zone standard.  He scored 316.70 in the final round of the one-meter event.  Though he stumbled in the prelims and competed in the B-final, his NCAA Zone-qualifying score was the second highest of anyone in either final heat.

WOMEN’S DIVER OF THE WEEK | CYDNEY LIEBENBERG | UIC | SENIOR | PRETORIA, SOUTH AFRICA.

Cydney Liebenberg was a triple champion at the House of Champions at IUPUI.  She scored 291.00 in the one-meter final to win the event.  Her score of 275.45 in the three-meter final was strong enough to hold off divers from IUPUI and Illinois.  Liebenberg has won both diving events in three straight meets.  She also was the lone competitor in the platform event at the House of Champions, posting a five-dive score of 204.90 in the final round.
