The Utah diving team will be competing against Hawaii this Saturday, Oct. 15 at 11 a.m. The meet will be held in the Duke Kahanamoku Aquatic Complex in Honolulu, O’ahu.

Hawaii is one of the traditional powerhouses in diving and we are excited about the opportunity to compete with them at the conclusion of our training camp,” said Utah head diving coach Richard Marschner. “It will be a good early test to see where we are at and give us a good gauge of what we need to improve upon in the lead up to our home meets versus the Arizona schools.”

This meet will not be available on divemeets.com.
