Stowers Punches Ticket to NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships

March 12, 2006

Results

LEXINGTON, Ky. – Sophomore Evan Stowers tallied a sixth-place finish on the men’s platform with a score of 630.50 to lead Georgia Tech at the NCAA Zone B Diving Championships on Sunday. Stowers becomes the first Tech diver to qualify for the NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships.

The top three from each event make the NCAA meet. Stowers made the meet by virtue of the divers in front of him already qualifying on the one- or three-meter springboard competitions.

“The divers were having good prelims, but not finals,” said head diving coach John Ames. “Evan and Stephanie finally put together a nice finals today.”

Sophomore Stephanie England posted a sixth-place finish on the women’s platform with a score of 477.8. The top three from that event advanced to the Women’s NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships.

Tech will host the 2006 Men’s NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships in the Georgia Tech Aquatic Center, March 23-25.
