WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – Madie Zirzow competed her first-career NCAA Zone Championships Friday, Mar. 15. The freshman netted scores of 214.10 in the 1-Meter and a 188.35 in the 3-Meter preliminaries. Zirzow did not advance to the finals in either event, which took the 18 highest scores from the preliminaries.

In the 3-meter, she started off her set with a forward two and a half somersault pike that scored a 32.40 followed by a reverse two and a half somersault  pike for a mark of 33.60. Her back two and a half somersault tuck netted a score of 23.80, but that was followed up by her highest-scoring dive – an inward one and a half somersault pike that received a 37.80. Zirzow’s final two dives, an inward two and a half somersault pike and a back one and a half somersault one and a half twist free had scores of 28.35 and 32.40.

Purdue's Michelle Cabassol won the 3-Meter with a score of 660.80 (preliminary and final round scores were combined).

Zirzow earned 46th place with a score of 214.10 in the 1-Meter Championship.

Eastern Michigan's Kelly Hendricks won the 1-Meter with a score of 587.50 (preliminary and final round scores were combined).

Zirzow is the first of two Cardinals competing in post-season action. Junior breaststroker Bridgette Ruehl will compete at the NCAA Championships in Indianapolis next week in the 100 and 200 breast.
