PISCATAWAY, N.J. – Three divers of the Yale men's swimming and diving team competed against the best divers in the region at Rutgers University for the chance to dive at the NCAA Division I Swimming and Diving Championships.

First year Christian DeVol led the Yale divers at the meet, qualifying for finals in both the one-meter and three-meter diving events. DeVol placed 17th and 11th in the one-meter and three-meter diving events, respectively. 

Sophomore Chris LaBella finished at 26th and 31st in the one-meter and three-meter diving events, respectively. First year Timmy Luz followed up at 37th and 30th in the one-meter and three-meter diving events, respectively.

""The NCAA Zone Diving Championships is a super competitive meet. Seeing and competing at this level will help our team in the long run," remarked Chris Bergère, Yale's head diving coach. "We have a young group of divers who have great potential. This wasn't our weekend but we showed up and were tough.  I'm super proud of all we have accomplished this season."
