RENO, Nev. – Three University of Nevada divers, Melyssa Charlton, Stephanie Hansen and Grace Huang, will participate in the Zone E Diving Championships at the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado this week.

Charlton, a senior, Hansen, a sophomore and Huang, also a sophomore, will represent the Wolf Pack from Thursday-Saturday with preliminaries beginning at 11 a.m. each day.

The top eight competitors based on combined score in the three dives, (1M, 3M and Platform) will qualify for the NCAA Championships. 19 women’s teams will compete, including Arizona, Arizona State, Boise State, BYU, Cal, Colorado State, Fresno State, Hawaii, Idaho, Nevada, New Mexico, Northern Arizona, Northern Colorado, San Diego State, Stanford, UCLA, UNLV, USC and Utah. 10 men’s diving teams will also be at the event, competing in their own division.

Last season Huang claimed ninth on the 3-meter (560.40) and 1-meter boards, (516.70) and seventh on the platform (459.55). Hansen did not advance beyond the preliminary round during last year’s championship meet, finishing 20th on the 3-meter (256.45) and 47th on the 1-meter (190.65) in the first two days of competition. Hansen posted a score of 189.20 in the preliminary round, narrowly missing the championship round on the platform. Charlton did not compete in the zones last season.
