Tallahassee, Fla. –Incoming freshman, Ford McLiney (Kansas City, Mo.) closed out the competition by finishing 10th in the men’s platform event on Sunday, Aug. 14 at the AT&T Diving National Championships in Los Angeles, Calif., hosted by UCLA.
With his 10th place finish, McLiney has earned a spot in the 2012 Olympic Team Trials, which will be held at the Weyerhaeuser King County Aquatic Center in Federal Way, Wa., June 18-24.
In addition, he placed 17th on the 1-meter and 29th on the 3-meter springboards.
