May 25, 2013
QUEBEC CITY -- South Carolina rising junior Cole Miller delivered one of the best performances of his career on Saturday as he finished in sixth place on the three-meter springboard at the Canadian Summer Senior Diving Nationals in Quebec City, Canada.
A native of Regina, Saskatchewan, Miller posted a score of 353.55 in the finals, where the top two finishers advanced to the World Championships. Miller earned his spot in the finals with an eighth-place finish in the preliminaries with a score of 348.90, competing against 21 of the top divers in Canada.
"Cole just made a name for himself for Canadian diving," South Carolina head diving coach Todd Sherritt said. "This was his highest finish at the senior level. He represented the Gamecocks in a great way here. Cole has positioned himself for a shot at the next Olympics. It was an outstanding performance."
Miller placed 11th on the one-meter board on Friday.
