    USC All-American Victoria Ishimatsu will lead a quartet of Trojan divers competing at the 2012 USA Diving Winter National Championships and World Cup Trials, scheduled for Dec. 15-22, in Knoxville, Tenn. The event was moved from February to December due to the 2012 international schedule.

    In addition to 10 national titles being awarded, the meet will serve as the final opportunity to qualify for the 2012 U.S. Olympic Team Trials and also will be used to select rosters for several 2012 international competitions, including the FINA World Cup in February.

    Ishimatsu, a five-time All-American, is pre-qualified to compete in the quarterfinals of the 3-meter and will also dive in the platform. She was a semifinalist on 3-meter at the 2011 U.S. Winter Nationals.

    Freshmen Celia Pinczower and Jessie Warren and men's freshman Jordan Gear will all compete in the preliminaries of the 1- and 3-meter springboard.

    All preliminary events are scheduled for Dec. 15-16 while the women's 3-meter quarterfinals begins Dec. 20.
