Feb. 21, 2008

Atlanta, Ga.- The Florida State men’s divers dominated the three-meter competition Thursday evening placing four athletes in the finals while sweeping the top two positions.

Sophomore Terry Horner (Orlando, Fla.) won the three-meter competition for the first time in his career while junior Dan Frebel turned in a career performance to nab the second position.

“It means a lot, lately I haven’t been diving as well on the three-meter,” Horner said. “I’ve been putting forth a lot of effort and it feels really good to see it all come together.”

“It feels good to take second place,” Frebel said. “It’s great for the team, it’s great for all four of us to get in the finals and for two of us to take first and second is great.”

Junior Scott Derner finished fifth for the Seminoles, while senior Alex Tilbrook took seventh.

“I am so proud of all my boys,” FSU diving coach Patrick Jeffrey said. “They really get behind each other and Terry [Horner] and Dan [Frebel] really lit it up today.”

The men will be back in competition on Friday as the Seminoles look to continue its hot streak on the one-meter. Horner is the defending National Champion on the one-meter.
