PROVO, Utah – The BYU dive team heads to the Air Force Invitational for its final regular season competition on Feb. 1-2.

“The divers came away with several season and personal bests from the Utah meet,” BYU head diving coach Tyce Rouston said. “Now the Air Force Invitational gives us the opportunity to fine-tune performances in a format that is similar to conference. I’m hoping the confidence and momentum of the team continues to build.”

The Cougars will face several schools over the weekend, including Air Force, Boise State, Cal Baptist, Colorado Mesa, Denver, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming. Divers will compete in the 1-meter, 3-meter and platform events.

Several Cougars have received NCAA zone cuts this season including men Nathan Gonzales, Morgan Cooper, Ryan Evans and Kimble Mahler. For the women, Kaela Call, Kennedy Cribbs, Morgan Mellow and Morgan Paul have earned cuts.

Air Force’s head diving coach, Stan Curnow, attended BYU where he studied physical education and competed on the dive team. As a diver, Curnow was named Western Athletic Conference diving champion three out of his four years at BYU and earned All-American honors in 1972 and 1974. He was also a finalist in the 1972 Olympic Trials.

The two-day invite will begin on Friday, Feb.1, at 10 a.m. and continue at 9 a.m. Saturday morning.
