Pitt Diving finishes strong against George Washington

PITTSBURG – The University of Pittsburgh men’s and women’s dive team finished strong against George Washington in a dive-only meet Saturday morning at Trees Pool.

Senior Dylan Rose and second Jess Vega both won first place in each of the platform, 1 meter and 3 meter events. Vega set a personal best in all three events and Reed set a new personal best in the 1 meter.

“Dylan and Jess both had a phenomenal two days,” said head diving coach Katie Kasprzak. “Their confidence has improved more and more and I’m delighted to see them grow.”

Nine Panthers earned their NCAA Zone Cups, five of which qualified for all three diving events: Reed (platform, 1 meter, 3 meters), Cameron Cash (platform, 1 meter, 3 meters), Jackson Salisbury (platform, 1 meter, 3 meters), Josh Parquet (platform, 1 meter, 3 meters), and Jess Vega (platform, 1 meter, 3 meters).


“The competition was really fun and had a lot of energy,” Kasprzak said. “It’s great to see so many divers getting their zone scores so early in the season. I’m thrilled to see their confidence continue as we enter our mid-conference meet next week.”

Diving scores will carry over to the overall scores for the doubleheader against George Washington. The meet will continue with swim-only events on November 18 and 19 at Trees Pool.


The Panthers men’s and women’s diving program will be back in action Nov. 17-19 at the Ohio State Invitational in Columbus, Ohio.
