PRINCETON, N.J. – For the second consecutive year, Virginia’s Elizabeth Kaye qualified for all three diving events at NCAA Championships following a third-place showing in the platform competition at the NCAA Zone A Championships on Wednesday. Kaye posted a score of 496.95 during her 10 dives from the platform.

UVA’s Nick Sanders also reached the finals of the platform diving competition where he finished ninth with 629.35 points. It marked the second consecutive year Sanders has advanced to the finals of the platform at the Zone A event. He placed 13th last year.

Previously this week, Kaye recorded qualifying finishes to the NCAA Championships in the 1-meter and 3-meter diving. She repeated as the Zone A 3-meter diving champion (642.45) and was the runner-up in the 1-meter competition (587.70).

“It was a great week for our divers at Zones,” said UVA diving coach Josh Arndt. “The team brought energy to the pool every day and built on it. Lizzy put everything together this week and improved each day as well as the rest of the team having some of their best finishes at Zones. We’re looking forward to carrying it onto Athens.”

The NCAA Women’s Championships will take place in Athens, Ga., from March 20-23. Virginia has won the past three team titles and will attempt to be just the third program to win four consecutive national team titles.
