After top-five finishes for the No. 19 ranked men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams at the ACC championships, the Irish divers will compete this Thursday through Saturday at the NCAA diving zone championships.
With the NCAA championships a week away for the women’s team and two weeks away for the men’s team, the Notre Dame divers will compete in the event for a chance to qualify for the NCAA championships. Spearheaded by senior diver Joe Coumos, a two-time NCAA qualifier, diving coach Caiming Xie will take six additional divers between the men’s and women’s squads: freshmen Kelly Straub, Kate McCahan and David Waszak; sophomores Cristian Herrera and Erin Isola; and senior Peter Myers.
Notre Dame’s diving team will be looking to secure spots in the NCAA championships when they compete in the NCAA diving zone event Thursday through Saturday at the McCorkle Aquatic Pavilion in Columbus, Ohio.
