Indiana University diver, sophomore Darian Schmidt, was named Big Ten Diver of the Week earlier today. The conference office announced Schmidt as the recipient of this award after he won both the 1-meter and 3-meter events last weekend to contribute to the Hoosier men's team victories over No. 7 Virginia and No. 24 Penn State in a double-dual meet at Councilman-Billingsley Aquatic Center.
On the 1-meter, Schmidt scored 399.30 points and 378.40 points on the 3-meter. Both scores are NCAA Zone qualifying scores and this is the second career Big Ten Diver of the Week award.
Next weekend, IU will travel to Austin, Texas to compete in the USA Short Course Winter Nationals Nov. 29-Dec.1. Some members of the team will travel to Columbus, Ohio in the Ohio State Invitational Nov. 30-Dec. 2.
