McCrory, Johnston wrap up first NCAA dive meet since Olympics

Posted January 5, 2013

— Saturday marked the end of a three-day Tennessee Diving Invitational meet in Knoxville, which saw 2012 Olympic medalists Abby Johnston and Nick McCrory return to collegiate competition for the first time since March of 2011.

McCrory qualified for the finals of the men’s 1-meter competition, taking second overall with 319.75 points. McCrory also advanced to the finals of the 3-meter event, along with teammate Jordan Long. McCrory scored 370.70 points in the finals to earn a third-place finish, while Long placed ninth with a score of 333.30.

Both McCrory and Long surpassed the NCAA Zone Diving Championships qualifying mark on the 3-meter board with their performances. Duke Logo More Duke Stories

Johnston came in 26th in the preliminaries of the women’s 1-meter springboard event with a score of 227.80.

Both McCrory and Johnston returned from London with medals following the Olympic Games. Johnston earned a silver in the 3-meter synchro while McCrory took bronze in the 10-meter synchro.

“This meet marks the end of our winter training and the beginning of the second half of the year,” said diving coach Drew Johansen. “We have three meets in a row as we move through January and everyone is set up for a great finish to the season.”

Freshman Jaimee Gundry represented Duke in the women’s platform competition on the final day of the meet, totaling a season-best 205.90 points on her list of five dives to finish 16th out of 30 divers. Her highest-scoring dive came in the final round, where she earned a score of 47.50 from the judges on a back 1 and one-half somersault with 1 and one-half twists.

Gundry also competed in the preliminaries of the women’s 3-meter springboard event Thursday, placing 26th with a score of 237.30.

The Duke swimming and diving program returns to action Saturday, Jan. 12 when it hosts South Carolina at Taishoff Aquatic Center at 11 a.m. The Blue Devils will honor the program’s 17 seniors prior to the start of the meet.
