The Kenyon men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams traveled to Carnegie Mellon University (Pa.), where four Kenyon divers from each team participated. Despite the meet being unscored for team points, the Owls had a successful day.
Israel Zavaleta ’24 was once again the standout for the men’s swim and dive team, earning first place in the one- and three-meter events with scores of 397.35 and 386.25, respectively. “I’m proud of myself for competing well,” he wrote in an email to the Collegian. “But I’m also proud of my teammates that completed new dives.”
For the women’s swim and diving team, Katarina Ilic ’24 was the top scorer for the Owls on the day, finishing third in both the one-meter and the three-meter dive with scores of 251.63 and 254.40, respectively.
Kenyon will next compete at the Total Performance Invitational, a three-day meet in Gambier that starts Thursday.
