Day Two

Credit to Andrew Mering for running the numbers.

Texas added two A-final qualifiers and one consolation final qualifier in 1-meter diving on Thursday, filling in 34 points of the 60-point hole they were in vis-à-vis Cal after swimming prelims this morning. Senior Jordan Windle and freshman Noah Duperre qualified 3rd and 4th, while freshman Brendan McCourt’s 310.20 points put him in consols. McCourt scored 353.70 points on the 1-meter board at Big 12 Championships for a 5th-place finish so he has the potential to pick up a few extra points in the consolation final.

Louisiana State senior Juan Hernandez led the morning round with 380.55 points. He won SECs in February with a final score of 440.45.

The Big Ten will be well-represented in the springboard finals. Indiana’s Andrew Capobianco, Purdue’s Gregory Duncan, and Ohio State Lyle Yost all made top-8, joining Miami’s Brodie Scapens and Stanford’s Conor Casey. Miami and Ohio State also placed divers in the consols.

I thought bottom 8 are locked into their scoring position and only top 8 dive again with a chance to move around 1-8 place?
