1-Meter Results | NCAA Diving Zones Preview
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Four members of the Colorado State diving team opened up NCAA Diving Zones on Thursday with 1-Meter Springboards.
Junior Mary Kate Hardy had the Rams’ strongest score of the day, finishing 29th, with 243.24 points. After just missing the qualifying score for Zones during her first two collegiate seasons, the team-high score was hard-fought recognition for her work this season.
“I thought she did well,” head diving coach Kevin Witt said. “She definitely was the most consistent, and that is key to a meet like this. There are a lot of really good divers here, and even really good dives are scored more difficultly.”
Melissa Bollig (35th, 230.70), Ariana Milone (47th, 216.25) and Paige Greely (50th, 202.95) each had solid starts to the day, but small mistakes cost each athlete spots in the finals.
“I think five out of six of their dives were pretty good and consistent, but each one of them had one dive in their round that was just a miss,” Witt said. “One missed dive cost each of them quite a few spots.”
The Rams will continue their efforts competition Friday, with Bollig, Greely and Milone will competing on the 3-Meter Springobards. Fans can follow live results here.
“3-Meter is stronger for a couple of our girls,” Witt said. “How they perform tomorrow is going to come down to all the same stuff as today. It’s a long meet, and it’s hard to stay warm and lose or get into any kind of rhythm. Hopefully they can come back strong. They just have to be consistent and avoid those mistakes that can drop them so many spots.”
CSU’s four representatives at NCAA Diving Zones is the most by the Rams in more than a decade, and tied for the second-most in the Mountain West.
