Down-Jenkins and Vazquez Selected ACC Diver of the Week

Story Links CHAPEL HILL, NC — Senior Anton Down-Jenkins and junior Aranza Vazquez were named Men’s and Women’s ACC Diver of the Week, the conference announced Tuesday afternoon. Last week, the Tar Heels completed their second consecutive double meet sweep with both the men’s and women’s UNCW convincingly beating out. Down-Jenkins swept the 1-meter and 3-meter springboard events for the 10th consecutive double encounter dating back to the 2020-21 season. He scored 390.75 points in the 1-meter competition and 374.33 points in the 3-meter competition to earn his seventh career weekly award.

Like Down-Jenkins, Vazquez won the women’s diving events — 1m and 3m springboards – ahead of the Tar Heels in the double win over the Seahawks. In the 1-meter dive, Vazquez scored a 320.33 in the win and a 3-meter dive score of 367.20 to earn the award for the fourth time in Carolina Blue and White.

The Tar Heels return to competition at Koury Natatorium against South Carolina on November 5. The meeting starts at 10:00 a.m
