Coming off an Olympic bronze medal in the London Games, Duke diver Nick McCrory became the ACC’s most decorated diver on Saturday night.
On Friday, he won the 3-meter springboard for the second time in his career. That win gave him six ACC titles, which is most in the ACC’s male diving history. He was once again tested by Virginia Tech’s Logan Shinholser. McCrory set his own conference and school record with a total score of 498.60.
On Saturday, McCrory went into the finals of the 10M platform dive in first place, with the Hokies Shinholser right behind him once again. He blew away the field (515.20 to 464.35 for Shinholser) and became the most decorated diver in the ACC’s history with his seventh title. He passed NC State’s Allyson Reid all-time.
McCrory is the first ever male to sweep the diving events.
