Indiana Diving’s Johansen, Tyler Rewarded for National Excellence



BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – The College Swimming and Diving Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) on Monday (April 1) rewarded two members of the Indiana swimming and diving program among its postseason awards.


For the third consecutive season, Indiana head diving coach Drew Johansen was named a CSCAA Diving Coach of the Year – his second-straight award in the men’s category. Junior Carson Tyler was named the CSCAA Men’s Diver of the Year.

Indiana showcased perhaps the greatest-ever diving performance at an NCAA Championships last week during the 2024 NCAA men’s national meet in Indianapolis. The Hoosiers totaled 121 points on the boards, 66 points better than the second-best diving team (Ohio State) and outscoring all but 10 combined swimming and diving programs. Indiana has eclipsed 100 points at back-to-back NCAA meets, earning 104 points last year.

Johansen was previously named the CSCAA Men’s Coach of the Year in 2018 and 2023, as well as the women’s coach of the year in 2022. His program has produced an NCAA Champion in five of the last six full seasons (since 2018) and seven total titles in that span. The Hoosiers have won the 3-meter and platform championships in back-to-back seasons.

At the NCAA Championships, the trio of juniors Tyler and Quinn Henninger and sophomore Maxwell Weinrich collected two medals from each of the three diving events – two gold, two silver, two bronze – and eight All-America finishes.

Tyler won two NCAA titles last week, repeating as platform champion Saturday after earning his first-career 3-meter title Friday, which was won by now-graduated Hoosier Andrew Capobianco last season. Combining the championships and a bronze-medal finish on 1-meter, Tyler totaled 56 points over the week – a total that outscored every other diving program.

Tyler won on platform with a score of 515.75, IU’s best-ever mark at an NCAA Championships. He led a 1-2 finish for the second-straight night as Weinrich earned his first-career national medal. Weinrich totaled 19 points on the week. Henninger took silver on both springboards and finished seventh on platform – a total of 46 points.
