TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The Florida State divers will be looking to qualify for the 2019 NCAA Championships next week by competing at the Zone B Championships, which will be held at Auburn from March 11-13 at the James E. Martin Aquatic Center.
“There is no doubt that we compete in one of the toughest zones, if not the toughest every year,” FSU head diving coach John Proctor said. “We’ll have to be on our ‘A’ game next week, but we had a great ACCs and we’ve been looking good in practice and we’re going to carry that momentum with us. We’re ready to go.”
Based on the allotted spots for the zone and the number of NCAA scoring women’s divers from 2018, the top nine on 1-meter, eight on 3-meter and six on platform will automatically advance to NCAAs in Austin, Texas from March 20-23.
The men will qualify the top six on 1-meter, seven on 3-meter and nine on platform for their meet, which is also held at the Lee and Joe Jamail Texas Swimming Center from March 27-30.
Should any diver qualify and finish within the top 12 in another event, they can add that event to their NCAA list.
Men’s 1-meter prelims will start the meet off on Monday at 1 p.m. CT, followed by finals at 1:15 p.m. CT. Women’s 3-meter prelims will start at 3:15 p.m. CT, and finals will begin at 6 p.m. CT. Scores will carry over from prelims to finals. Live scoring can be followed on divemeets.com.
