Jenkins 3rd, Hilde 4th On 3-Meter At Pac-10 Diving Championships
Feb. 23, 2006
Juniors Kenny Jenkins and Michael Hilde finished third and fourth, respectively, on the 3-meter springboard on the first day of the 2006 Pac-10 Men's Diving Championships in Federal Way, Wash., on Thursday (Feb. 23).
The men's diving competition is being held in conjunction with the women's. The swimming portion of the men's championship will follow next week.
Jenkins finished with 352.50 and was followed by Hilde's 346.70. Jenkins' previous best on the board at Pac-10s was sixth last year. He moved up three spots on Thursday after finishing sixth in preliminaries.
Hilde had finished second on 3-meter the previous two years, but has still never finished lower than fourth in any Pac-10 final (seven overall).
Both divers will compete on the 1-meter springboard on Friday and on the platform on Saturday. Hilde won the latter event as a freshman in 2004.
