5 Hoosiers get final chance to reach NCAA finals

While their peers enjoyed spring break on beaches and cruise boats, five members of the diving squad spent break putting their competitive lives on the line. \nFreshmen Landon Marzullo and Chris Hill joined seniors Taylor Roberts and David Legler and junior Will Bohonyi in Columbus, Ohio, at the NCAA Zone Diving Championships. All five men were hoping to make the NCAA cut and join the rest of the eligible team at the NCAA national meet, which begins on March 27. \nThe first day of competition wasn’t what the group had in mind. Although four of the five made it past the preliminary round, the highest ranking Hoosier was Marzullo at 10th. Roberts placed 14th, Hill 15th and Legler 16th. Bohonyi didn’t make it to the next round after placing 29th in the prelims. \nDay two showed a more typical outcome for the Hoosiers with Roberts and Marzullo clinching the top two spots on the 1-meter, officially qualifying them for the NCAA tournament. Hill and Legler finished 14th and 15th, respectively. \nThe four divers will finish up the three-day event today with the platform competition.
