After Friday’s double dual, the divers in Iowa State went to the Minnesota Diving invitational to compete in platform events. Dana Liva took the fourth place in all women divers with a score of 225.10.

The score also exceeds the NCAA Zones cutoff of 225 and Liva became the second athlete in diving team that qualified the NCAA Zone Diving Championships in this season.

Katherine Mueller and Sydney Ronald scored 162.15 and 160.80 respectively.

From now on, two divers in the Cyclones, Liva and Ronald, both receive tickets to Zone Diving Championships.

Before the thanksgiving break, the Iowa State divers will head to the Mizzou Invite in Columbia, Missouri on Nov.16-18.
