COLUMBUS, Ohio—Two Miami divers completed day one of the 2014 NCAA Zone C Diving Championships hosted at Ohio State's McCorkle Aquatics Pavilion in Columbus, Ohio. Sophomore Michael Nash and freshman Sean Sargent are representing the RedHawks in Columbus.
Nash concluded day one with an 18th place finish in the three-meter diving event. After scoring 312.35 points in the preliminary round, Nash tallied 274.80 points in the finals earning a combined score of 587.15 placing him 18th overall.
Sargent placed 35th in the three-meter event with a score of 244.75 points.
The NCAA Zone C Diving Championships are just one of five such events taking place across the country. Each one is allotted qualifying births to the NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships, which kick off later this month. Zone C has been allotted nine spots, so the top three divers in the three-meter dive, the top three in the one-meter event and the top two finishers in the platform dive are to automatically qualify for the NCAA Championships. The finals in each event are comprised of the top 18 finishers in the preliminary rounds.
Nash and Sargent both return to action for the RedHawks on Friday, this time competing in the one-meter diving event. The NCAA Zone C Diving Championships continue through Saturday, Mar. 15.
