In diving, freshman Amber Chong took second place in both events. She scored a 254.95 in the one-meter contest, and a 241.05 in the three-meter competition. Another strong double performance came from freshman Lily Kurtz came in second place in the 100 breaststroke with a 1:08.66 time and third in the 50 breaststroke with a mark of 31.99 seconds.
