South Carolina freshman diver Taryn Zack finished eighth in the three-meter competition at the NCAA Championship on Friday. Finishing as one of the top eight divers in the event, Zack has earned All-America honors. Zack is the first Gamecock all-american in the three-meter diving event since Allison Brennan earned the honor during the 2006 season.

Zack advanced to Friday evening’s final with a total of 320.25 during preliminary competition. One of three freshman divers in the eight-member field, Zack followed with an impressive 319.35 during the final round to finish eighth, earning her first career all-america honor.

“Taryn is definitely on her way,” South Carolina head diving coach Todd Sherritt said. “As a freshman finishing in the top eight is a huge accomplishment, especially heading into an Olympic year. She has definitely exceeded expectations.”

Senior swimmer Christy Williams also represented South Carolina on Friday, competing in the 100-yard butterfly. Williams swam a 55.37 during preliminary heats to finish the event in 52nd position. Williams will compete in the 200-yard butterfly on Saturday.

Williams will begin trials at 11 a.m. on Saturday morning in the 200-yard butterfly.
