COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo – The Arizona State dove well at the NCAA Zone E Championships, the qualifier to send Sun Devil divers to the NCAA Championships, but the team members are still seeking the first individual bid after day one.

In each discipline, ASU was only a handful of points shy for the automatic qualifying bid. Junior Hailey Casper, who was second in the 1-meter springboard after prelims, finished in fourth overall and narrowly missed one of the 3-meter automatic bids.

Senior Riley McCormick was also at the top of the leaderboard in third place following prelims. However, the Canadian National Champion would finish the event in fifth place with ASU freshman Luke Clohessy diving strong in the finals to pass McCormick and finish fourth.

In the complicated rules of diving qualifying, the Sun Devils still have an excellent chance of qualifying for the NCAA Championships. The current divers who have already punched their tickets are now out of the field of contention for the remaining qualifying spots. Even if the diver were to compete, the NCAA would select the next highest diver.

Competition continues tomorrow with the men’s 1-meter springboard and the women’s 3-meter springboard competition.
