HARRISONBURG, Va.-The Virginia men’s and women’s diving corps won three events Saturday (Feb. 6) at the JMU Diving Invitational in Harrisonburg, Va.
Senior Becca Corbett (Louisville, Ky.) won the women’s 1-meter event with a score of 300.45 and placed second in the 3-meter event with a total of 292.55. Fellow senior Katie Warburg (Wilton, Conn.) placed third on 1-meter with 264.00 points, while freshman Kirsten Parkinson (Stamford, Conn.) finished fifth on 3-meter with a score of 268.35, which ranks sixth on UVA’s all-time list.
On the men’s side, senior Colby Shinholser (Burtonsville, Md.) won the 1-meter event with a score of 322.55, while fellow senior Carl Buergler (Arlington, Va.) captured the 3-meter event with a mark of 324.10.
“Overall, we had a solid day on 1-meter,” UVA head diving coach Jason Glorius said. “We have some work to do on 3-meter. We need to get better at believing in our training and transferring that over to a meet situation.”
Next up, the Cavalier divers will compete at the ACC Women’s Swimming and Diving and Men’s Diving Championships Feb. 17-20 in Greensboro, N.C.
