CHICAGO, Il. - Calvin College senior Michael Moentmann took ninth on the one-meter board at the NCAA III Diving Regional Friday night at the University of Chicago.
Moentmann (Solon, Oh./Solon HS) placed ninth in a field of 27 divers with a score of 403.90 points.
Moentman started slow with a pair of early dives but rallied as the 11-dive competition progressed.
"We had a bit of a slow start tonight but Michael came on in the latter half of the run and the plan is to continue that momentum into tomorrow," said Calvin diving coach Aaron Paskvan. "The key will be execution and clean entries."
Moentmann will compete on the three-meter diving board Saturday afternoon at 4 p.m. (CST).
Heath Ogawa of Lake Forest College took home the gold medal in Friday's one-meter competition with a score of 523.90.
