McCormack Named ACC Diver of the Week
GREENSBORO, N.C. – For her strong performance in a dual meet with Florida Gulf Coast, junior All-American Kara McCormack was named ACC Diver of the Week Tuesday.
McCormack, who captured first place in both the 1-meter and 3-meter events in Saturday’s matchup with the Eagles, impressed despite her team’s disappointing defeat. McCormack easily outpaced the 3-meter field (360.23) and also edged out teammate Thea Vock for first in the 1-meter event (311.55).
In just over two years in Coral Gables, McCormack has dominated her competition for head coach Randy Ableman’s diving team.
The reigning ACC Women’s Diver of the Year earned her career-first All-America recognition in 2013, finishing sixth in the platform finals (286.20) at the 2013 NCAA Division I Swimming & Diving Championships in Indianapolis. She earned Honorable Mention All-America recognition as a freshman in the 3-meter finals.
McCormack, who was named 2012-13 University of Miami Athletics Department Underclassman Scholar of the Year, won her first conference title in 2013 with a first-place finish in the platform finals at the ACC Championships. The Austin, Texas, native and mathematics major carries a 3.98 GPA in the classroom.
