DURHAM, N.C. – Following a strong outing against NC State Oct. 20, Duke’s divers return to action Saturday in Greenville, N.C. The Blue Devils face East Carolina and Richmond at 1 p.m. at Minges Natatorium.

Against the Wolfpack, the Blue Devil divers were dominant in sweeping the top two spots in all four events. Senior Evan Moretti turned in a career-best award of 387.38 to win the men’s one-meter springboard competition and later won again at the three-meter height. He was tabbed the ACC Men’s Diver of the Week for his performances, both of which surpassed NCAA Zone Diving qualification standards.

On the women’s side, freshman Maddi Pullinger and senior Lizzie Fitzpatrick finished one-two in the one-meter event and senior Mackenzie Willborn claimed the three-meter competition, followed by Pullinger in second.

Next weekend will see the Duke swimmers and divers send representatives to the Big Al Invite Nov. 9-10 in Princeton, N.J., and to the inaugural ACC/Big Ten Challenge Nov. 10-11 in West Lafayette, Ind.
