DAVIS, Calif. — UC Davis freshman Katie Truong will look to earn a berth into the NCAA Championships this week, competing at the NCAA Zone E Diving Championships hosted in Flagstaff, Ariz., on the campus of Northern Arizona University at Wall Aquatic Center.

A total of 96 divers—both men’s and women’s—representing 21 universities will compete this week, with preliminary rounds beginning at 10 a.m. each day. The women’s 1-meter finals are set to begin at 1:35 p.m. on Monday, while the 3-meter finals will take place on Tuesday at 1:35 p.m. The third and final day of competition will conclude with the women’s platform finals at 12:35 p.m.

A second-team All-Mountain Pacific Sports Federation honoree on the 3-meter board, Truong qualified for the Zone E Regional Championship for the first time in her career as an Aggie. She posted her qualifying score on the low boards during the Aggies’ final home contest of the 2017-18 season against San Jose State, finishing second overall with a score of 270.67.

At the MPSF Championships held just last month, the San Jose, Calif., native posted a ninth-place finish in the 1-meter program with a score of 249.15, and a sixth-place finish on the 3-meter boards with her season-best score of 261.40. Truong then rounded out the final day of league competition with a ninth-place finish on the platform scoring a 198.90—her best score of the season and the second-highest by an Aggie diver during the 2017-18 season.
