"Coming back off of winter break, this is a tough meet; some people get ready faster than others," said Georgia diving coach Dan Laak. "I'm disappointed we didn't have more people in the finals, but I'm pretty happy about how we did. It's a good way to start the second semester and hopefully we'll do better tomorrow."

The springboard rounds will continue on Wednesday. The invitational will conclude on Thursday with the platform competitions.
