Drew Livingston is ready to lead the divers this weekend in their pursuit of qualifying for the NCAA championship meet.

 Livingston, a junior, won the NCAA one-meter diving title as a freshman and finished third in the event last year. He hopes to be a leader for his freshman teammates, Will McCraney and Will Chandler.

“I’m not a very vocal person. I hope my actions kind of speak for themselves,” Livingston said. “I definitely feel like I’m kind of the one who everyone is looking toward for advice and setting an example for everybody.”

Livingston hopes to earn his spot in the meet on the first day of competition and then be there for his teammates the rest of the weekend.

“On every dive, I really just want to see them have a consistent, competitive attitude,” Livingston said. “I want to see at least one of them make a spot. But if that doesn’t happen, I want to see them have the best meet they’ve had in the season up to this point.”
