GREENSBORO, N.C. - University of Connecticut junior diver Taryn Urbanus (Quincy, Mass.) concluded her final day at the 2015 NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships on Friday at the Greensboro Aquatic Center.
The Connecticut standout competed in the 3-meter event, finishing 37th in the preliminaries of the event with a score of 281.90. Her point total did not earn her a spot in the finals of the 3-meter, as Urbanus saw her highly-successful 2014-15 campaign come to an end.
UCLA's Maria Polyakova totaled the top score (380.60) in the preliminaries on Friday, while Virginia Tech's Kaylea Arnett (370.50) and Arizona's Samantha Pickens (369.70) rounded out the top three. Urbanus fell less than 40 points of qualifying for the finals.
On Thursday, Urbanus was in action in the 1-meter event. She placed 30th in the event after finishing with a score of 279.70. She recorded two top-three finishes at last week's NCAA Zone A Meet to become the first Husky diver to qualify for the NCAA Championships since 2013. Urbanus earned All-Conference honors as a sophomore last season, and she was named the American Athletic Female Diver of the Week last month.
"I am very proud of the effort she made to be centered throughout her first NCAA Championship Meet," UConn diving coach John Bransfield said. "It was a learning experience for a student-athlete that puts her heart into making gains and furthering her ambitions."
Friday's action marked the close of the 2014-15 season for the UConn swimming and diving team. The Huskies finished with a record of 5-1 in dual meets and placed nine members on the 2015 All-Conference Team. Connecticut also earned CSCAA Scholar All-America honors earlier this month.
