Tomorrow, Junior Paige Thompson will vie for a National Championship in the Women's Three Meter event scheduled to begin at 12:00 p.m. Paige qualified in the 6th position and will look to erase a small deficit she carries into the final with her. The five voluntary dives from the semi-final will be added to the five optional dives that will be competed tomorrow.
In the afternoon session, Senior Janine Strack and Junior Amanda Blong will compete in the Women's Three Meter Synchronized Final. Janine and Amanda qualified 5th of six teams to advance. Their event is scheduled to begin at 3:00 p.m.
