WEST LAFAYETTE, Indiana - Yale's Drew Teer rounded out his collegiate career in style at the NCAA Zones Diving Championships, taking 15th overall in the 1 meter event and 26th overall in the 3 meter competition.
The Bulldogs are a member of Zone A, a region loaded with tough competition; Teer faced off with - and more than held his own - against representatives from the likes of powerhouse programs Virginia, Virginia Tech, Navy, Pitt, and WVU.
"It was a great experience to compete at that level against some
the best divers we see all year" Teer said. "Guys I've come to know
pretty well over the years or even as far back as
age-group diving. We all definitely had a lot of fun with it."
Teer certainly had an enjoyable experience, using a score of 547.55 to take 15th in Zone A in the 1 meter competition, bolstering his 26th place finish in the 3 meter. Yet the senior admitted that he had to battle for every point.
"Personally it was a bit frustrating because I had dove better throughout the season and this was just my being worn down/broken from the entire season," the senior explained, "but it definitely felt like a good way to go out."
