Flagstaff, Ariz.------San Jose State University divers Cari Reiswig and Kylie Fonseca concluded their season competing in the 1-meter diving event at the NCAA Zone E Championships.

Reiswig placed 17th with a 517.10 total for 12 dives. She was one of 18 qualifiers for the finals with her 15th place finish out of 51 divers in the preliminary round of six dives with a score of 258.75.

Fonseca finished 40th with a score of 218.40 in the preliminary round.

"Things went pretty well today. We always have the NCAA (Championships) in our sights. We came up a little bit short," said Mark Butcher, the San Jose State diving coach. "Both Cari and Kylie did a good job of not letting the meet be too big for them."

"In a broad sense, I'm very happy with how they (Reiswig and Fonseca) did this year," concluded the Spartans diving coach. Reiswig was 21st and Fonseca, 41st, in the 3-meter event on March 6 - the first day of the NCAA Zone E Championships.
