Wyoming Diver Mark Murdock Begins Diving At The NCAA Championships

March 24, 2011

MINNEAPOLIS - Wyoming Cowboy senior diver Mark Murdock begin competition at the 2011 NCAA Championships on Thursday in Minneapolis, on the 1-meter springboard.

"Mark could have been a little better on the front end of his dives, but overall I think he dove pretty well," Wyoming diving coach Pat Bukowski said. "There is a lot of great divers here and Mark just needs to settle in. I think he will have a lot better day tomorrow on the 3-meter."

In the 1-meter preliminaries Murdock placed 30th with a score of 272.85. Unfortunately, Murdock's did not secure him a spot in the 1-meter finals, but he will continue competition Friday.

Murdock will continue at the NCAA Championships on Friday with the 3-meter springboard, which he was the Mountain West Conference Champion on. He will continue with the 3-meter about 1 p.m. Mountain Time. Saturday's platform dive will be Murdock's last event beginning at 12:30 p.m. MT.
