Jan. 3, 2012
Ann-Perry Blank finished eighth on the women's 1-meter board with 250.55 points after placing 11th in prelims with a score of 239.75. Long finished 15th with a score of 208.25; she placed 14th in prelims with a score of 219.
Owen Blank finished 14th on the men's 3-meter board with 280.55 points after finishing 16th in prelims with a score of 279.65 points.
"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.
