WILLIAMSTOWN, MA -- Eph women's divers senior Molly Harrington and first year Gabby Mercier will head to Middlebury College this weekend for the NCAA DIII Regional Diving Meet.
Eph diving coach Kit Koch thinks that with 29 divers competing in the New England Regional as many as eight divers could advance to the NCAA Championships later this month in Indianapolis.
Harrington who competed in gymnastics prior to coming to Williams is trying to over come an injury-plagued season to qualify for the championships in Indianapolis. Mercier has put together an impressive first year campaign and would like nothing more than to extend her season and compete against the nation's best before concluding her initial season.
The Ephs will dive at 2:00 PM on Friday and then again on Saturday at 12:00 PM. The Ephs will compete on the 3-meter board Friday and on the 1-meter board on Saturday.
"Both women have worked hard and are well trained," said Koch. "I expect both of them to have a positive NCAA experience."
