Senior Phillip Jones led the way for the Vols with a win on the 3-meter board. Freshman Ryan Rincon finished second while earning a NCAA qualifying standard.

"I'm obviously pleased with Phillip's showing," UT diving coach Dave Parrington said. "I am very excited with Ryan's performance which earned him a NCAA qualifying standard. This takes a significant amount of pressure off of him."
