    Chicago, Ill.- Some of the Midwest's finest divers made their way to the UIC Natatorium on Sunday, as the Flames hosted the UIC Diving Invitational.

    The Flames' men finished first against UW-Milwaukee and Northwestern, while the UIC women took fourth in a crowded field.

    UIC received outstanding performances from Flames standouts Mark Pappalardo and Ryan Fitzer. Pappalardo took second in the one-meter event with a 251.45 while grabbing third in the three-meters with a 224.60.

    Fitzer was solid as well, finishing just behind teammate Pappalardo with a third-place score of 237.25 in the one-meter and 221.00 in the three-meter board.

    Sarah Economides stepped up for the depleted women's team, who were without three-time NCAA Zone C qualifier Caitlin Carey and newcomer Miranda Ambuske. Economides placed as UIC's highest scorer with a sixth-place showing in the three-meter dive, notching a 206.45, while piling up 201.55 in the one-meter.

    Tara Goodwin was solid in her second meet since knee surgery last season, taking ninth in the three-meter event with a 193.40.

    For the men, Northwestern's Ryan McIntosh won the one-meter and UW-Milwaukee's Jeff Jasinowski took the three-meter event. On the women's side, Leanne Dumais of Northwestern was victorious in the three-meters, while Illinois State's Krystal Featherston won the one-meter board.

    The UIC diving team will rejoin the swimming team next weekend for a Horizon League dual meet at Wright State on Saturday in Dayton, Ohio.
