LARAMIE, Wyo. - University of Wyoming Cowboy senior diver Derek Campbell was named Western Athletic Conference Diver of the Week on Tuesday. He is the first Cowboy diver to earn a weekly conference honor since Mark Murdock was named Mountain West Diver of the Week on February 8, 2011.
Campbell, a senior from Laramie, Wyo., won both the 1-meter and 3-meter springboard events in a dual meet in Corbett Pool against Colorado School of Mines last Saturday afternoon. Campbell scored 294.20 on the 1-meter and tallied 300.75 on the 3-meter to help the Cowboys to a 162-114 win. The marks by Campbell were season-best scores as he competed in his final event in Corbett Pool. Both scores also rank the third in the WAC this season.
