The University of Oregon reports tennis player Alex Rovello died in a diving accident Saturday at Tamolitch Falls in the Willamette National Forest, according to The Associated Press.



Authorities said friends and bystanders tried to rescue Rovello after he failed to surface in the Blue Pool at the base of the falls, but they were hampered by the depth of the pool and 37-degree water, the AP reports.

Rovello had a 21-8 match record this past season as a No. 3 and No. 4 singles player.
