Division III Divers Wrap Up Regionals

With the final NCAA Division III Diving Regional Championships complete, the focus now shifts to the NCAA Championships in Shenandoah, Texas where a total of 527 participants will compete. 48 divers will finish their season at one of the most competitive meets of the year and have a chance to make an impact for their team.

On the women’s side, Emory sits at the top of the CSCAA Coaches Rankings heading into the NCAAs. However, they won’t have any divers representing them on the boards. With Denison in a close second on the chart, it could come down to Allison Fitzgerald nailing her dives to edge out the Eagles.

For the men, Denison leads the rankings and finished Regionals as one of only four schools to have more than one diver qualify. Denison’s senior Max Levy finished as the top qualifier out of Region 1 with a score of 523.70 on the 1-meter and 567.00 points on the 3-meter, finishing just 2.25 points above his teammate Brian Allen.

For many of the divers who qualified for NCAAs, it’s about more than diving – it’s about representing your school and finding ways to make a difference in the overall team scores.

“I am incredibly excited to finish off my diving career at such a fun and team-oriented meet. Williams has a truly amazing group of women going to NCAAs this year and I cannot wait to compete alongside them,” Ariana Ross, who qualified from Region 3, said.

A full list of divers who qualified for the 2017 NCAA Division III Swimming and Diving Championships and will be competing on March 15-18, 2017 can be found below.
