Jason Glorius, who has guided four different Cavalier divers to the NCAA Championships, completed his third season as the Cavaliers' head diving coach in 2015-16.
2015-16 was another record year for the Cavalier diving corps, which saw three divers qualify for the NCAA Championships, the most in a single year in school history. Becca Corbett became the first UVA female diver to qualify for two national meets, while Corey Johnson and Kylie Towbin qualified for the first time. Corbett also earned All-ACC honors on 3-meter.
In 2014-15, the Cavaliers had two divers qualify for the NCAA Championships for the first time in school history, with JB Kolod qualifying for the third straight year and Becca Corbett becoming the first woman in program history to qualify for the national meet. Kolod earned honorable mention All-America honors on 3-meter. Five of the six school records fell in Glorius' second season.
Under Glorius' tutelage in 2013-14, the Cavaliers advanced six divers to the NCAA Zone Diving Championships, while JB Kolod qualified for the NCAA Championships. Kolod became the first Cavalier to make a championship final at the NCAA meet, placing seventh on 3-meter. Kolod also was the first diver from UVa to score on two different boards, finishing 10th on platform. Overall, three school records fell in Glorius' first season.
