TROY, N.Y. -- Bates first-year Emma Jarczyk scored 439.55 points, just 13 shy of the team record, to place eighth out of 23 women in the 3-meter competition Friday at the Division III North-Northeast Regional Diving Championships at RPI.

Seven women from the regional will advance to the NCAA Division III Swimming & Diving Championships in Indianapolis. The top three in both disciplines -- 1-meter and 3-meter -- receive automatic bids. The 1-meter event takes place Saturday at noon.

Jarczyk's (Sudbury, Mass.) 11-dive score fell only 13.00 points shy of eight-time All-American Kelsey Lamdin's score of 452.55 from Feb. 22, 2009.
