Cougars Set for NCAA Zone Diving Championships

March 5, 2017

HOUSTON – The Houston diving trio will compete at the 2017 NCAA Division I Zone D Championship, in Columbia, Mo., from March 6-8. Competition on each of the three days begins at 11 a.m. CT at the Mizzou Aquatic Center.

The American Athletic Conference Most Outstanding Diver Micaela Bouter is in the hunt to punch her first ticket to NCAA Championships. The junior was named to the All-Conference list in both the 3-meter and platform after being crowned the 3-meter champion and grabbed a second place finish on the platform at the American Championships. Bouter, the league’s Female Scholar-Athlete of the Year will compete in both the 1- and 3-meter springboard at zone.

Bouter will be joined by freshmen Katelyn Abernathy and Lauren Burrell. Abernathy who earned two podium finishes at the American Championships qualified for the 3-meter springboard while Burrell will compete in the 1- and 3-meter events.

This event is one of five across the country that qualify divers for the NCAA Championships March 15-18 in Indianapolis, Ind. The top five female divers from each event at their respective zone diving meet will earn a spot at the NCAA Championships. Additional place finishers in each event at each zone will be eligible based on the number of divers from that zone that finished in the top 16 at the previous year's NCAA Championships.
