CLEMSON, SC – Divers Eric Shulick and Jessica Watcke are scheduled to represent the Tigers at the 2004 NCAA Zone B Diving Regional on March 12-14 in Athens, GA. The competition will be held at Gabrielsen Natatorium on the University of Georgia’s campus. Shulick will compete in the one and three-meter diving competition and Watcke will compete in the one-meter for Clemson.

This will be Shulick’s second consecutive trip to the Zone Diving Regional. At the 2003 Zone meet, Shulick qualified for the NCAA Championships after finishing 13th in the one-meter competition with 547.55 points. This season at the ACC Swimming & Diving Championships, the junior from Naugatuck, CT won the conference title in the one-meter and took seventh place in the three-meter for the Tigers.

Watcke, a sophomore from Cheshire, CT, will compete at the 2004 Zone B Diving Regional for the first time this weekend. This season, Watcke finished in the top-three in 15 of the 19 dual-meet diving events (one and three-meter) that she competed in. She placed 16th in both the one and three-meter at the 2004 ACC Swimming & Diving Championships.
