CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va.—Sophomore Virginia diver JB Kolod will compete at the World Championship Trials in Tallahassee, Fla., which start Wednesday (May 15).

Kolod will compete on the 1-meter and 3-meter springboards. He set the UVa record on both boards during the 2012-13 season and recorded Virginia’s highest diving finish at the NCAA Championships with a 12th-place mark on the 3m boards.
