AUSTIN, Texas – Nathan Gonzales recorded a new BYU season-high score in the 1-meter at 348.75 during the first day of the UT Diving Invite in Austin, Texas.

"We made some good progress today and gained some valuable experience qualifying six divers into a televised finals situation," BYU head diving coach Tyce Routson said. "Nathan Gonzales made the podium on the 3-meter on a much improved final. Morgan Paul and Elizabeth Homes are getting very close to achieving NCAA qualifying scores on the 1-meter. Each day we will get more settled into our best performances."
