Divers Get Noles Ahead in Tri-Meet

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. –  The (NR/19) Florida State swimming and diving teams started competing against (18/23) Alabama and Miami at the Alabama Aquatics Center on Friday.

The tri-meet began with both men’s and women’s 1-meter diving and 3-meter diving. The Seminoles took home six of the eight first place finishes awarded, including two overall event victories.

“This meet was a tough turn around for us after yesterday with competing and traveling,” FSU head diving coach John Proctor said. “But, I’m really proud of the way they did.”

The women finished first and second on 1-meter, led by juniors Molly Carlson (290.85) and Ayla Bonniwell (279.50).

Carlson placed second overall in a tight 3-meter field (308.00) followed by freshman Grace Cable in third (302.60) and Bonniwell in fourth (298.45).

In another close 3-meter battle, junior Cameron Thatcher placed second with a score of 367.75, followed by sophomore Joshua Davidson in fifth (334.95) and junior Aidan Faminoff in sixth (289.20).

Davidson dominated 1-meter, winning with a total of 360.65. Faminoff (280.30) took fifth and Thatcher (260.70) was seventh.

The women outscored Miami 23-14 and Alabama 31-7, while the men went up 23-15 on the Crimson Tide and 23-13 on the Hurricanes.

The swimming events will start on Saturday at 10 a.m. (CT).
