Freshman Ford McLiney took home the silver on the three-meter springboard, sophomore Tom Neubacher grabbed the bronze on the one-meter springboard and junior Nick Klein was awarded a bronze in the platform event. All three divers earned All-ACC honors.
The Seminoles finished the dual meet season with a record of 2-2 in the conference and an overall showing of 7-3. Their pair of ACC victories came against Georgia Tech and Duke, while the losses were to Virginia Tech and NC State.
Having already qualified for the NCAA meet in March, senior Mateo De Angulo heads into this portion of the season with the top time in the NCAA in the 500 free at 4:15.43.
