DURHAM, N.C. – The Duke men’s swimming and diving program will send two male divers to the NCAA Division I Championships for the first time in program history this week, as senior Jordan Long and junior Nick McCrory head to Indianapolis, Ind., to contend for national titles in 1-meter, 3-meter and 10-meter platform diving. The 2013 NCAA Championships get started Thursday, March 27 and continue through Saturday, March 30 at the IU Natatorium and the IUPUI Sports Complex in Indianapolis.

Preliminaries will begin at 11 a.m. EST each day of competition, followed by the finals session at 7 p.m. EST. Friday and Saturday’s finals sessions are both scheduled to be broadcast live on ESPN3.

A senior from Grosse Pointe, Mich., Long will compete in the 1-meter and 3-meter springboard events after turning in a standout performance on the 3-meter board at the NCAA Zone B Diving Championships earlier this month in Knoxville, Tenn. He earned 724.40 points in the 3-meter event at Zones, scoring 376.95 points in the preliminary round and adding to his total with 347.45 points in the final. The Zones meet also saw Long place seventh in the 1-meter finals with a score of 314.10. A first-time NCAA qualifier, Long finished eighth in the 3-meter competition at the 2013 Atlantic Coast Conference Championships.

A two-time NCAA individual champion on the platform, McCrory returns to the national stage this week after spending a year away from collegiate competition to train for the 2012 London Olympic Games. McCrory won the 1-meter and platform events at the Zone B Diving Championships and made history last month at the ACC Championships, capturing conference titles on all three disciplines. With seven ACC diving crowns in his career, he is now the most decorated diver – male or female – in the history of the conference. The NCAA champion on the platform in 2010 and 2011 and a two-time All-American in all three diving disciplines, McCrory has qualified to compete in the 1-meter, 3-meter and platform events at this week’s championship meet.

Long and McCrory round out a strong representation of divers from the ACC at the 2013 NCAA Men’s and Women’s Swimming and Diving Championships, as 16 men and women qualified for NCAAs, tied for the most of any conference in the nation.

The top eight finishers in each event at the NCAA Championships will earn first team All-America honors, while places nine through 16 will garner honorable mention All-America accolades.
