INDIANAPOLIS – The USA Diving High Performance department announced today the 2019 High Performance Tier Two Squad. The squad consists of 15 divers, and features two members of the 2018 FINA World Cup squad that competed for the U.S. last June in Wuhan, China, Maria Coburn (Austin, Texas) and Zach Cooper (Greenwood, Ind./Miami, Fla.).
The High Performance Tier Two Squad is made up of divers who most exhibit the potential, skill and determination to become 2020 U.S. Olympic Team members. A review of the High Performance Squad is conducted periodically, and divers may be removed or added from the squad following such evaluations.
The Tier Two squad is listed alphabetically with the diver’s hometown and training site. Please note that athletes may be postgraduates, but train at their university.
