Miami’s David Dinsmore won the 2017 NCAA platform dive title, but lost last year to Colin Zeng and two freshman phenoms. All four return this year in what could be the most explosive diving event in recent NCAA memory.
Jordan Windle won the 3-meter board, adding a second event to his NCAA lineup. All three Texas divers will compete on 1-meter and 3-meter later this month at NCAAs.
Waddell, best known as a backstroker and butterflier, used a huge opening 100 yards to crush her own lifetime best in the 200 IM.
Wisconsin’s Cameron Tysoe along with Minnesota’s Nick Yang and Max McHugh were tabbed as the Big Ten weekly award winners.
When all is accounted for, it seems the Golden Gophers are poised to be even better than last season, at least point-wise, and having finished 15th at the NCAAs last season, they could very realistically crack the top 10 this time around.
