The Cuveglio, Italy, native became the program's first-ever First Team All-American in 2016 after taking eighth overall at the NCAA Championships in the 100 breast and setting an A-10 and GW record time of 52.06 in the preliminaries. Selected divers will be announced Sunday, March 12, following the Zone Diving Meets that are being held March 6-11.

Kentucky's divers will vie for spots at the NCAA Championships this week as they compete at the NCAA Zone C Diving Championships March 9-11 in Bloomington, Indiana.

Prelims for the springboard events will take place on Monday and Tuesday, concluding with platform diving on Wednesday. We dive in that pool every single day.

Black placed fourth with a score of 607.75.
