Russi Named WAC Diver of the Week

DENVER – Redshirt sophomore Ryan Russi was named Western Athletic Conference Diver of the Week, the conference announced Tuesday morning.

Russi swept both diving events in Saturday’s dual against UNLV. Wyoming’s divers competed at the Air Force Invitational but scores applied to the dual being held in Las Vegas. The Murrieta, Calif., native posted a 304.70 to win the one-meter board and followed up the performance with a first-place score of 323.95 on the three-meter. Both were season-best marks and the first NCAA Zone qualifying scores of the year for Russi.

Cowboy swimming and diving will return to action at the Western Athletic Conference Championships, February 22-25, in Houston, Texas.
