Divers compete in Minn. for NCAA qualifier

In its final meet of the season, the youth-led IU men’s diving team has one last chance to make its mark on the national stage and qualify divers for the NCAA Championships.

The Hoosiers will go to Minneapolis for the NCAA Zone C Diving meet. Teams from the Midwest region will participate in a host of events beginning Friday and continuing through Sunday.

Since sophomore Landon Marzullo is the only IU diver with any NCAA Championship experience, IU coach Jeff Huber said he only expects a couple divers to advance.

“We know the divers we have can score in NCAAs,” Huber said. “The pressure with the men is there are fewer spots. Anyone who qualifies this weekend will go to NCAAs and score.”

Only eight men in the meet will earn a spot in the NCAA Championships, which will take place March 19 to 21 at College Station, Texas.
