The men's team will also have their top three divers back from the USC Invite. The BYU divers swept the competition last weekend in Los Angeles against several of the top schools in the country, including Stanford. Freshman Andy Bradley won the 1-meter competition, junior Aaron Russell won the 3-meter, and junior Justin Wilcock won the platform event.
"Each individual diver really did some spectacular things," said head diving coach Keith Russell. "To compete against some of the best in the nation and have a separate individual win a single event is great for our program to be recognized nationally."
