WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – The Indiana University men’s and women’s diving teams wrapped up a successful NCAA Zone C Championships on Saturday, qualifying two more divers for the NCAA Championships. Over the last three days, Indiana qualified divers for 10 spots – seven for men and three for women.
Indiana’s Jessica Parratto won her second event of the week to qualify in the platform dive, while Andrew Capobianco also qualified for the platform dive at the NCAA Championships. Both will compete in all three diving events for IU at the NCAA Championships.
The top-8 finishers in the men’s 3-meter and the top-9 finishers in the women’s 1-meter earned automatic berths to the NCAA Championships in those events. Once a diver posts an auto-qualifying finish in an event, he or she only has to be among the top 12 to earn the NCAA Championships berth in the other events.
Parratto was stellar again on Saturday, winning the platform final with a score of 595.15. The Big Ten Champion in both the 1-meter and platform dive, the redshirt senior won both those events this week for Indiana.
Capobianco was solid throughout his list on the platform on Saturday, placing seventh overall with a total of 687.70 to earn his spot at the NCAA Championships.
The 2019 NCAA Women’s Swimming and Diving Championships get started for the Hoosiers on Thursday, March 21 in Austin, Texas.
