2019 Double WAC champion diver Tazman Abramovicz will transfer to Wisconsin for the 2019-2020 season the school announced on Monday. His transfer comes after his coach Landon Marzullo left UNLV to take over as the head diving coach at Wisconsin.
Last season, as just a freshman, Abramowicz won the 3-meter and platform events at the WAC Championships for UNLV and was the runner-up on the 1-meter. He became the first male diver in more than 30 years to represent UNLV at the NCAA Championships when he finished 43rd on the 1-meter springboard and 44th on the 3-meter springboard.
Abramowicz is a native Canadian who grew up training with Dive Calgary.
At the 2019 Big Ten Championships, the Wisconsin women scored 40 points in diving, with freshman Tereza Vithoulkas coming through on an 11th-place finish in the platform as their only top-16 finisher. The Wisconsin men scored 36, all from junior Kevin Pomeroy, who had a high mark of 8th in the platform final.
Those 36 points for the men were crucial in that Wisconsin was only 30 points ahead of Penn State for 6th place in the overall team standings.
