WELLESLEY, MA--Ariana Ross '17 is Williams women's swimming and diving sole representative at the NCAA DIII Region 3 Diving Championships this weekend at Wellesley College. Tonight's event was the 3-meter board, and Ross went in accompanied by the cheers of her teammates who travelled from Williams to watch her compete. Ross placed fourth overall with a total score of 445.10, just one place short of an automatic NCAA qualification. Her best dive in the set was her 2 1/2 tuck. Ross came out of tonight's competition already looking to improve tomorrow: "I was not totally satisfied with tonight, but I am looking forward to tomorrow's competition. I practiced my 1-meter dives again tonight and I'm ready to get after it."
