He opened the meet with a score of 477.65 to win the 3-meter springboard competition and followed Friday, Nov. 22 with an award of 446.50 in the 1-meter final. In the platform event Saturday, Nov. 23 at Duke’s Taishoff Aquatic Pavilion, McCrory posted a score of 460.30 to once again lead the field.

The Blue Devil men and women resume action Saturday, Jan. 11 when they travel to Columbia, S.C., to face South Carolina in a non-conference dual meet.
