Dreesen leads divers on platform in final day of NCAA Zones
FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. – Kevin Dreesen led the BYU divers on platform as the Cougars wrapped the NCAA Zone E Diving Championships at the Northern Arizona University Aquatic and Tennis Center Wednesday.
"The team displayed great actions and better form throughout the platform events," BYU head diving coach Tyce Routson said. "With more experience and time on the higher levels of platform, we can be a little more consistent and confident. I am happy for Ali Tippetts-Kottcamp in her last collegiate event to do so well for herself."
In the women’s platform preliminaries, Tippetts-Kottcamp earned the top BYU score with a 204.40 but missed the final round.
Dreesen scored a 292.80 in the preliminary round of the men’s platform event to earn a spot in the final round. In the finals, Dreesen totaled 581.55, good enough for 16th place overall.
BYU will finish its postseason as qualified swimmers and divers compete at the NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships in Atlanta, Georgia. The women’s championship will run from March 17-19, with the men’s championship taking place on March 24-26.
