5 Out Divers Make History At NCAA’s Postseason Meet In Virginia

For the first time ever, Virginia Tech, Virginia Tech, one of the nine Power Five Conference schools, has an out LGBT athlete. And not just one, but five.

Old Dominion junior Cory Moreno, Drexel freshman Anthony Musciano, West Virginia junior Alex Obendorf, and Harvard junior David Pfeifer participated in what is believed to be the largest group of out divers to ever compete at the NCAA Zone A Championships hosted by Virginia Tech.

“That’s a big thing, especially for just one zone,” said Obendorf, who came out publicly in 2014. “I personally wouldn’t think there would be that many [LGBT] people here.”

Erik Hall shared a video from the meet where he states that 5 LGBT divers competed, but one requested not to be named.
