Summers competed in the 1-meter and 3-meter along with platform. He narrowly missed finals with a 13th-place finish in the 3-meter and tied for 15th in the 1-meter.

QUOTABLE: HEAD DIVING COACH Todd Sherritt

"Coming off of our Christmas break, I was very pleased with how this week turned out. We used this as a training meet to throw in some new dives and work on mechanical issues without emphasizing place finish. In saying that, moving forward, I see many breakthroughs a s a result of this meet and how it turned out."

UP NEXT FOR CAROLINA
