Senior diver Ben Grado (Conifer, Colo.) won his second-consecutive Pac-12 Championship on Friday after scoring a 405.20 on the 1m. He won the title on the 3m on Thursday.

Senior Andres Guerra (Sugarland, Texas) also scored points for the Wildcats after finishing seventh in the competition.

“I am pretty happy with the result with the divers so far,” Arizona diving coach Omar Ojeda said. “Ben is improving a lot. We are taking it one step at a time, but this is a really good start right now.”

Although the male divers are competing at the Women’s Pac-12 Championships, all scores will count towards the Men’s Pac-12 Championships, taking place in Los Angeles beginning Wednesday, Feb. 29.

Grado and Guerra will compete on the platform on Saturday to conclude the diving portion of the meet.
