Diving !

Coaches just approved scoring diving. Not sure if this means Carthage is out for hosting.

If this takes away from Carthage hosting the meet every other year, I am going to be angry.

I'm confused. How does scoring diving impact anything?

I don't think that it impacts anything in terms of who is hosting. Diving was always contested off site but was never scored. I don't think that it will impact Carthage hosting the meet. If Carthage hosts, which I think they shouldn't be taken out of any rotation, they can conduct diving at an offsite location. The University of Wisconsin Parkside (located 5 mins from Carthage) has a pool and I believe that it has 1m and 3m boards. Because the scoring of swimming is Top 16 it must be held at Wheaton, IWU, Rose Hulman, and Carthage since they are the only schools with 8 lane pools. Is this in effect this year? I don't think that Wheaton has a 1m board but maybe they do, I haven't been there in two years. If it is, they'll have to get one installed, quickly. I can’t find any mention of the cahnge on any websites, can I ask where the information was received from?

the last time Millikin hosted conference (2001). The diving portion was competed at IWU because Millikin has no board. Arrangements can be made. Just suck no one will be there to cheer for them except family.

Although Coach Jon might not want to admit it, Wheaton does have a 1m board. : )
