    Five USC divers will compete in the 2008 NCAA Zone E Diving Regionals, Thursday through Saturday (March 13-15) in Oklahoma City, Okla., at the Oklahoma City Community College Aquatic Center.

    Senior Kim Popp, sophomore Alexis Demond and freshman Christine Petrilli will represent the women's squad while freshmen Steven Starks and Derek Roth will compete for the men. Popp is looking to make her third consecutive trip to the NCAAs.

    Starks was a three-time finalist at the 2008 Pac-10 Championships, taking second on platform, while Petrilli took third on 1-meter and platform.

    USC sent three divers last year to the NCAA championships after they qualified at the Zone E meet: then-seniors Michael Hilde and Kenny Jenkins for the men, Popp for the women.
