DENVER, Colo. (Jan. 29, 2019) —  For the third time this season, senior Ryan Russi was selected as the Western Athletic Conference Diver of the Week. It’s the fifth time in his career he has earned the honor.


Russi won the 1-meter diving event and placed second in the 3-meter in last Saturday’s dual 150-146 win over UNLV. A senior from Murrieta, Calif, he finished first with a score of 291.08 in the 1-meter and a season-high 314.70 in the 3-meter. He has won back to back 1-meter events over the past two weeks.


The Cowboy and Cowgirl divers will be back in action this weekend at the Air Force Diving Invite. Friday and Saturday are set to begin at 10 a.m. in Colorado Springs.
