Roberts to Compete at NCAA Zone D Regional Diving Meet

March 8, 2005

LAWRENCE, Kan. – Sophomore diver Jenny Roberts will compete in the NCAA Zone D Regional Diving Meet, March 11-13, in College Station, Texas. Roberts qualified for the meet behind the strength of her individual performances during the 2004-05 season.

“I am very proud of the way our divers competed this year,” diving coach Eric Elliott said. “I thought we had some talent coming into the year, but they have really impressed me. Jenny has had a great attitude and positive work ethic all season which has really paid off.”

Roberts qualified on the one-meter board with her first-place finish at Drury, Jan. 28, where she scored 274.50 dual-meet (six dives) points. The Chesterfield, Mo., native will compete in the one-meter, three-meter, and platform competitions at the NCAA Zone D Regional Diving Meet with a chance to qualify to compete in the NCAA Diving Finals, March 17-19, at Boilermaker Aquatic Center in West Lafayette, Ind.
