ATHENS, Ga. --- Georgia’s Ann-Perry Blank placed second in the women’s platform as the Georgia diving teams wrapped up action in the Georgia Diving Invitational at Gabrielsen Natatorium Sunday afternoon.
“It was a great weekend,” Georgia diving coach Dan Laak said. “It’s always good to get the second semester going with a meet. I thought we did a great job all weekend. Ann-Perry finished second today and did a great job, Darcie (O'Brien) did a good job today as well and Spencer (Madanay) had a great effort this morning, especially after having been under the weather. Overall, I think we performed well and it sets up everything for the rest of the season.”
