Day Three

Texas divers made the headlines after the prelims of 1-meter diving yesterday, but it was North Carolina who stole the show in prelims of the 3-meter springboard on Friday. Quite literally.

The Longhorns, locked in a battle for the team title with Cal, had two divers sitting in the top eight with two divers left to go. UNC junior Anton Down-Jenkins (428.15) and sophomore Alexander Hart (383.15), with a 76-point final dive, moved past Texas freshman Noah Duperre (375.50), relegating him to the consolation final. Duperre finished second behind teammate Jordan Windle in last night’s 1-meter final.

Indiana junior Andrew Capobianco (449.35) was the top qualifier this morning. He came in fourth in 1-meter diving last night. Texas senior Windle (419.25) qualified third behind Capobianco and UNC’s Down-Jenkins.

The rest of the A-final qualifiers include LSU senior Juan Hernandez (411.45), Tennessee junior Matthew Wade (398.25), Ohio State senior Jacob Siler (396.60), and Miami sophomore Brodie Scapens (386.00).

In addition, Ohio State put two more divers in the consolation final, while Tennessee and Miami each placed one. The 9-16 divers will compete again in the consolation final, so there is still ample opportunity for positioning to change.

If Texas had done as well as yesterday on this I would have said they put the meet away, but it’ll come down to finals tonight and prelims tomorrow.
