IOWA CITY, Iowa – Arkansas diving closed the second day of competition at the 2015 Zone Diving Championships on the one-meter boards Tuesday afternoon.

The zone diving meets then serve to qualify divers for the NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships. Arkansas will be competing in Zone D. Zone D is allocated eight qualifiers for the one-meter springboards, ten qualifiers in the three-meter boards and nine qualifiers in the platform. Unlike previous years, qualifying divers will only participate in the dives they qualified in.
