Minneapolis, Minn. – Christo Law registered the highest score out of 24 competitors on Thursday at the Jean K. Freeman Aquatic Center to claim gold on the three-meter diving board with a final score of 395.60 on day one of the Minnesota Diving Invitational.
Law began the morning prelims with a six-score dive of 380.60 to advance to the finals. The win for Law is the third of his year; he swept both the one-meter and three-meter titles in the season opener against Kenyon.
In addition to Law’s triumph, Stephen Romanik and Jacob Siler moved on to the finals as well. Romanik’s tally of 369.60 in the finals earned him bronze, while Siler’s final score of 341.95 earned him a sixth-place showing.
In the 24-man competition, Ohio State was the only team to advance three divers to the final. Narrowly missing out on a bid to the finals was Aaron Daniels-Freeman, who used a preliminary round score of 317.00 to finish in 10th place. Clay White (303.30) and Joseph Canova (297.65) placed in 12th and 13th place, respectively.
The men will move to the one-meter diving board on Friday with the prelims starting at 11 a.m. ET and the finals getting going at 5 p.m. ET. Full results from the meet are available at DiveMeets.com.
