PISCATAWAY, N.J. – Junior Kylie Towbin (New Canaan, Conn.) paced the field of the women’s 3-meter dive at the NCAA Zone A Diving Championships on Tuesday (March 6) at the Rutgers Aquatic Center. Towbin and sophomore Sydney Dusel (Naperville, Ill.) earned berths to the NCAA Championships in the event after finishing first and third, respectively.
Towbin recorded a 12-dive score of 687.40 to place first in the 3-meter dive. Her performance in the finals set a UVA record with a score of 364.15. She recorded a score of 323.25 in the preliminary round.

“It was an awesome day for us today,” head diving coach Jason Glorius said. “The divers really competed well and had some fun doing it. Kylie really had a great meet.”
In addition to Towbin and Dusel, the remaining three Cavalier divers advanced to the finals of their respective events.
