Nevada’s Sharae Zheng swept the springboard diving events as the one-meter winner claimed the three-meter title at the 2016 NCAA Division I Women’s Championships.

Zheng won the three-meter with 404.70 points.  That’s Nevada’s 5th NCAA title now.  Previously, Limin Liu won the women’s 100-meter fly in 2000 and went back-to-back in the 200 fly in 1999 and 2000.

She joins several divers to have won both the one and three-meter events, last done by Georgia’s Laura Ryan in 2014.

Miami (Ohio)’s Pei Lin suffered a balk that wound up costing her the title as she settled for second with 399.40 points.

Florida’s Kahlia Warner finished third overall with 387.20 points.

UCLA’s Maria Polyakova (381.95), Minnesota’s Zhou Yu (364.45), Purdue’s Mary-Beth Dunnichay (331.90), Stanford’s Gracia Leydon-Mahoney (329.45) and Indiana’s Lacey Houser (297.60) completed the championship finale.
