Three members of the Iowa women’s diving team will compete at the NCAA Qualifier in Austin, Texas, this weekend. Competition will begin on Friday and continue through March 13 at the Jamail Texas Swimming Center. The University of Texas-Austin will host the event.

Seniors Deidre Freeman and Veronica Rydze will dive in both the 1- and 3-meter individual events. At the Big Ten championships in Bloomington, Ind., Freeman set two school records for a second-place finish in the individual 3 meter and a third-place finish in the individual 1 meter.

Rydze also had a strong performance at Big Tens. She earned a 12th-place finish in the 1 meter and seventh in the 3 meter with a personal-best score.

Freshman Lauren Kelba will be the only Hawkeye to dive platform. She finished 24th in the event at the Big Ten championships.

If the Hawkeye are successful, they will compete at the NCAA women’s diving championships the following weekend.
