Freshman Carl Buergler also qualified for the 3-meter final and finished fifth with a score of 752.70. Classmates Colby Shinholser (260.90) and Jordan Sacks (206.40) placed 28th and 40th, respectively.

On the women’s 1-meter boards, freshmen Becca Corbett (498.50) and Katie Warburg (480.20) both qualified for the finals, placing seventh and ninth, respectively. Junior Kelly Lloyd (224.65) was 20th, sophomore Laura Gartrell (220.05) was 24th and junior Carlin Tettelbach (207.30) was 36th.
