Anthony Musciano is only a sophomore diver at Drexel University, yet he’s already making a name for himself. Musciano captured gold medals in both the 1-meter and 3-meter dives to win the Colonial Athletic Association championships for the Dragons.
He was also awarded the Most Outstanding Men’s Diver of the Meet award for the championships.
“It’s great to be a part of a Division I team where I can further my athletic career,” Musciano told Outsports. “Winning both boards this years means so much to me. I put in a lot of work this season with hopes to come out as the CAA champion on both boards. Accomplishing my goal feels amazing.”
Last year, as a freshman, Musciano won the 3-meter at the conference championships and a silver on the 1-meter. He was named Rookie Divers of the Year and co-Diver of the Year for the CAA in 2017.
With his junior and season seasons ahead of him, Musciano is aiming for the national stage.
“With only two years left of my career I hope to qualify for zones and make NCAAs,” he said. “Making the last two years count is what I want.”
He is openly gay and was one of four openly gay divers at the NCAA Zone A Championships. This year’s Zone A Championships will be held at Rutgers Univ., March 5-7.
