ANNAPOLIS, Md.-All six Virginia divers qualified for finals on the second day of the NCAA Zone A Championships Tuesday (March 8) in Annapolis, Md.
In women’s 3-meter action, senior Becca Corbett qualified for the NCAA Championships with a fourth-place finish (634.20 points). Corbett qualified on 1-meter Monday. The NCAA Championships will be held March 16-19 in Atlanta.
