Former Iowa divers Veronica Rydze and Deidre Freeman competed in the 2012 Canada Cup in Montréal over the weekend and finished fifth.

The duo posted a score of 275.04 points in the 3-meter springboard synchronized dive — a personal best, said Iowa diving coach Bob Rydze, Veronica Rydze's father. It was the pair's third top-10 finish at a national competition.

Veronica Rydze was a senior on Iowa's 2011-12 swimming and diving team. She took fifth on the 1-meter and ninth on the 3-meter springboards at the 2012 Big Ten championships and earned All-American honors in 2011 after placing 13th at the NCAA championships on the 1-meter.

Freeman, a 2011 Iowa graduate, finished her time in the Black and Gold as the school record-holder in the 1- and 3-meter dives. She placed third in the 1-meter at the 2011 Big Ten championships and earned All-American honors on both boards following her performance at the 2011 NCAA championships.
