Wednesday March 12, 2014Florida Divers Wrap up Season at NCAA Zone Regionals

Gainesville, Fla.

Florida Diving’s season came to an end at the three-day NCAA Zone ‘B’ Diving Regional Championships in Greensboro, N.C. Nine women and seven men emerged out of each field with a spot at the NCAA Championships.

 

Selections are built on a tier based formula that takes into consideration combined prelims and finals places on both springboards and platform. Sophomore Kahlia Warner displayed a career best platform score of 284.10 in prelims and finished with a 10-line total of 539.95, which placed her sixth overall in the event. After finaling on both springboard events at the Southeastern Conference Championships, Warner’s performance was a personal best at the Zones meet and her highest finish ever in a championships format on platform.

 

Both Warner and Delaney Dye made finals on one-meter. Warner placed 11th with a 12-line total of 580.60 and Dye placed 17th with a 12-line total of 534.90. Warner also was a finalist on three-meter, posting a 12th place finish and 12-dive score of 626.85. Emily Mosher competed on all three boards and enjoyed her highest finish on three-meter, 24th, with a score of 263.75.  

 

On the men’s side, Zachary Hernandez narrowly missed his career best in a 13th place finish on platform, ending with a six-dive total of 271.90. Chris Jones made the finals on one-meter and finished 17th overall with a 12-line score of 539.25.

 

Swimmers Already Invited: Florida women have qualified 14 swimmers and all five of their relays. Men’s rosters are expected to be released today. NCAA rosters are capped at 17.

 

What’s Next: The women’s NCAA Championship will take place from March 20-22 in Minneapolis, Minn., and the men will compete a week later in Austin from March 27-29.
