INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.  – The Florida State diving team finished the first day of the House of Champion Invitational with four athletes placing in the top 10 of their events on Friday at the IUPUI Natatorium.

“For it being this time of the year, we did some good things,” FSU head coach John Proctor said. “There were so bumps along the way but overall I think we were solid today.”

Junior Tyler Roberge led the way for the men on 1-meter, placing sixth with a final score of 343.70, averaging a tally of 57.28 per round, while senior Dylan Grisell followed in eighth place, scoring 322.10.

“Man, these two are doing some special things this year,” Proctor said. “Tyler was right there and Dylan battled hard today, despite not being 100 percent. Their attitudes have been great and I am eager to see what they do tomorrow.”

Rookie Aidan Faminoff scored 282.05 for 15th place.

The women’s competed on 3-meter on Friday as freshman Molly Carlson and sophomore Cassidy Gebhart placed within the top 10 of the event.
