Day 1 Diving Results

Day 2 Diving Results

Howard dominated the women’s events en route to the conference’s Most Outstanding Diver award. On day 1, she won the 3-meter springboard by more than 20 points, scoring 265.10. Day 2 was event more impressive, with Howard scoring 266.35 to win by nearly 26 points.

A year ago, Howard was only third on 1-meter and second on 3-meter. She upped her scores by 40+ points in both events for her senior-year sweep.

On 3-meter, Maine’s PhilAnn Dixon was second (244.80) for the second-straight year, with Binghamton’s Lindsey Weissman coming in third (240.35). On the 1-meter board, Vermont’s Emily Murphy was second (240.55), with Dixon third (238.85).

It’s been a great start to the meet for Binghamton, with Walters sweeping the men’s events and winning his own Most Outstanding Diver award. Walters nipped his teammate Erik Temple on day 1 to win 1-meter 272.20 to 270.85. Binghamton went 1-2-3 in that event, following a 1-2-3-4 sweep a year ago. Ryan Cohn (262.35) was third for Binghamton.

On 3-meter, Walters blew out the field in 312.00 points. Once again, Binghamton went 1-2-3, with Cohn second (277.45) and Temple third (272.55).
