UGA diver Ryan named to World University Games roster

Georgia diver Laura Ryan has been named to the United States roster for the World University Games.

The World University Games will take place July 6-17 in Kazan, Russia. The squad was selected based on recent World Championship and World University Games Trials held in Tallahassee, Fla.

“Laura did a great job at the Trials,” Georgia diving coach Dan Laak said in a news release. “I was proud of how she dove and how she competed. She got a little lost on one dive that made the difference between the World Championship team and the World University Games team. But she fought back after the missed dive. The trip to Russia should be a fun time and a learning experience for her.”

Ryan qualified for the World University Games on 3-meter springboard and 3-meter synchro. Swimmers Melanie Margalis and Megan Romano previously were named to the United States team.

Additionally, Georgia swim coach Jack Bauerle has been named to the board of directors for the College Swimming Coaches Association of America. Bauerle will serve as the Division I Men’s Swimming Representative.
