AUBURN, Ala. -- The Tennessee divers finished up competition today at the NCAA Zone B Championships in Auburn, Ala.
Senior co-captain Jake Dorsey was the only Vol competing on the competition's final day. The platform specialist finished in eighth-place with 432.75 points. Dorsey also finished 13th on the 3-meter and 20th on the 1-meter.
For the weekend, the Vols qualified one diver. Sophomore Phillip Jones earned his second trip to compete at the NCAA Championships in Austin, Texas. Jones qualified on the first day of competition with a fourth-place finish on the 1-meter springboard.
"I am pleased with where we are," head diving coach Dave Parrington said. "This meet is about qualifying for NCAAs and that's what we did."
Next up for the diving squad are the NCAA Championships March 27-29, in Austin, Texas
