Atlanta, Ga.- Florida State sophomore Terry Horner made it two-for-two winning the one-meter board to capture his second title at the 2008 ACC Championships Friday evening. A day after winning the three-meter, the reigning NCAA Champion on the one-meter won his signature event out performing all competitors.
“The win on the three-meter was a little bit of a surprise and I wasn’t feeling good at all [today],” Horner said. “I knew I needed to do something big to win. I went out and gave it my all and it came together for me.”
“Terry [Horner] came up with it again which is tough to do,” said diving coach Patrick Jeffrey. “He knows how to handle these situations and all of our divers did great I am proud of all of them.”
For the second consecutive day the Seminoles placed all four divers into the finals. Fresh off of his second place performance on the three-meter junior Dan Frebel finished fourth. Junior Scott Derner brought home seventh place and senior Alex Tilbrook finished eighth.
“I hope this puts some pressure on some of the other teams,” said Jeffrey. “When they feel that pressure it makes it harder to perform.”
The Seminole divers will compete in the platform competition on Saturday February 23 with prelims beginning at 11:00 a.m.
