DURHAM, N.C. – Blue Devils Mackenzie Willborn and Teddy Zeng claimed ACC Diver of the Week accolades Tuesday, as released by the conference office.

Both Willborn and Zeng turned in solid performances over the weekend at the Tennessee Invitational, which saw the Duke women take second and the men fourth in a field that included four nationally-ranked teams.

Willborn paced the Blue Devil women on the three-meter springboard Friday, taking second overall with an NCAA Zones qualifying award of 297.55. The junior from Flower Mound, Texas also led Duke with a second-place finish on the platform (224.25) Saturday and was third in Thursday’s one-meter competition (263.55).

Zeng continued what has been an impressive rookie campaign by recording top-three showings as well on all three disciplines in Knoxville. He headlined the Blue Devil men in Friday’s one-meter competition, taking second with a finals score of 345.75. Zeng was also third on the three-meter board (373.65) and on the platform (309.45). He surpassed the NCAA Zones qualification standards in all three events, while his platform score ranked as the sixth-highest in program history.

Willborn, Zeng and the Blue Devils return to the pool Jan. 12, 2018 in a dual meet at Queens University of Charlotte.
