COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – The Colorado State diving team participated in Day 1 of the Air Force Academy Invite at the Air Force Natatorium Friday, and sophomore Shayna Solomon ended as the lone Ram in the top 10.
With an average of each diver scoring 30 points less than what they have been scoring throughout the season, the Rams’ performance on the only event of Day 1, the 1-meter board, was not what they had expected.
“We were really flat and really tired,” said diving coach Kevin Wiit. “We have to be better than that.”
Solomon stands in eighth place, with a score of 236.90 points.
Witt feels in order to turn Saturday’s competition around they “have to try to iron some things out and realize that we have to be better than we were today.”
Colorado State, Wyoming, Northern Colorado, Northern Arizona, UNLV, San Diego State and host Air Force resume competition Saturday at 8 a.m. for Day 2 of the Air Force Invite, where the 3-meter board will be the center of attention.
The CSU and UNLV swimming teams face off Saturday at Moby Pool beginning at 1 p.m., with a special senior recognition presentation taking place prior to the meet at 12:40 p.m. The diving scores totaled at the Invite will be added to the team totals in the Rams-Rebels dual meet.
