Paulina Guzman and Laura Winn will head to Minneapolis, MN this Thursday through Saturday to compete at the NCAA Zone E Diving Championships, which qualify divers for the NCAA Championships which are held March 17-19 in Austin, TX.
Guzman, who is a freshman, will be competing on both springboard events. Winn, a senior, will compete on all three disciplines. Freshman Haley McNamara was also a zone qualifier but will not compete as she stays home after dealing with some minor injuries, as well as to focus on upcoming final exams.
Zone E has six spots available this year on the women's side. They are the winner on platform, top three on 3M and top two on 1M. After that, there is a descending order that will draw further down each event list for each spot repeated by a diver. So if the same athlete repeats in an automatic or drawn spot, the list would go one deeper.
