Two University of Wyoming Cowboy divers will compete at the NCAA Zone "E" Diving Championships beginning Thursday, at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colo. Sophomore Derek Campbell and Freshman Dalton Haas will compete on the 1-and 3-meter springboards as well as the platform dive.

"I am very excited to get my divers to the Zone Championships, Wyoming diving coach Pat Bukowski said. "They dove in this pool a couple times this season and I know they are very comfortable with it. I am taking them down there as a business as usual trip and hopefully they can perform well."

Campbell and Haas both secured bids to the NCAA Zone diving meet on Jan. 27 at the Air Force Diving Invitational. Campbell secured his spot on the 3-meter springboard, while Haas earned his spot on the 1-meter.

The Zone "E" meet serves as the diving qualifier for the NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships. There are seven places to the Men's NCAA Championship meet on the line at the Zone "E" Championships.

The meet will begin on Thursday at 11 a.m. MT with the 3-meter preliminaries. The meet will continue on Friday at 11 a.m. with the 1-meter springboard. The competition will close with the platform dive on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. All finals will follow directly after the preliminaries.
