Cowboy Diver Murdock Continues At The NCAA Championships On The 3-Meter Springboard

March 25, 2011

MINNEAPOLIS - Wyoming Cowboy senior diver Mark Murdock completed his second day of competition at the 2011 NCAA Championships in Minneapolis on the 3-meter springboard.

"Mark hit three of his dives today, but did not hit his other three and that hurt him," Wyoming diving coach Pat Bukowski said. "With the platform tomorrow it should be our day."

In Friday's 3-meter preliminaries Murdock placed 28th with a score of 313.05. His score did not qualify him for the finals, but he will continue the NCAA Championships on Saturday.

Murdock will conclude the 2011 NCAA Championships on Saturday with the platform dive which is perhaps his best event. He is the two-time reigning Mountain West Conference Champion on the platform.

The platform dive will begin Saturday about 12:30 p.m. Mountain Time.
