For the third straight season (and second time outright), junior Michael Diana (Somerset, N.J./Immaculata-Somerville) of The University of Scranton men's swimming & diving team was named the Landmark Conference Men's Diver of the Year, headlining nine combined All-Landmark selections for the Royals, which were announced on Tuesday.

Overall at this past weekend's Landmark Conference Championships, the Royals finished third as a team with 612.5 total points, as Diana and the rest of the All-Landmark Conference picks for Scranton led the Royals all weekend at the event in Germantown, Maryland.

Diana swept the diving events on the weekend in Maryland to win Landmark title in both the 1-meter and 3-meter dives, earning All-Landmark Conference honors in both events in the process. By capturing the Landmark's Diver of the Year award for the third time, Diana becomes the first swimmer or diver in program history to earn an individual conference award at least three times in their career, as well.
