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.
