Freeman fourth in both diving events in Lancers dual victory

Zane Freeman finished in fourth place in both diving events for California Baptist University in a dual victory over future D-I and Western Athletic Conference foe Bakersfield Saturday afternoon at the Lancer Aquatics Center in Riverside, California.

The 10th-ranked Lancers in Division II defeated the Roadrunners by a score of 169-131.


Freeman, a freshman, scored 240.08 and 216.90 points on the one and three-meter boards, respectively, scoring a total of four team points.

Senior teammate Zach Parry won both diving events, with 294.38 points at 1-meter and 303.98 points on 3-meter, which were both NCAA Division II Championship qualifiers. 

Junior Garret Chew took second on both boards and just eclipsed the 3-meter standard of 295 with 295.35 points and posted a 275.40 on the 1-meter.

CBU is transitioning to NCAA Division I and will join the Western Athletic Conference in 2018.

Cal Baptist became a member of the NCAA in 2012 bumping up from the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) to NCAA Division II.

The Lancers are currently in the NCAA Division II as a member of the Pacific West Conference competing in swimming and diving in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference.

The Cal Baptist men finished second at last season's conference championships.
