Second day of NCAA Zones in the books for Lobos

March 9, 2012

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - The 3-meter springboard competition was held today in NCAA Zone E Championships and New Mexico failed to send a diver forward into the finals round.

Megan Harper was the highest placing Lobo coming in 20th with a score of 263.05. In order for a diver to move on to the finals round they must place 18th or higher.

Ashlee Erickson was close behind Harper with a final score of 258.60 for 22nd place.

"Today was just a rough day for the Lobos," said Diving Coach Abel Sanchez. "Some days you aren't on it and today was one of those days for us."

Freshman Michole Timm finished 33rd with a score of 239.05.

Tomorrow is the final day of Zone competition with the Platform contest taking place. Megan Harper and Michole Timm were both slated to dive, but due to a concussion suffered by Timm, Harper will be the only Lobo participating.

Diving starts tomorrow at 11:00 a.m. MT.
