Salgado swept the diving events in Saturday’s win over East Carolina,
breaking his own school 3-meter record with a score of 314.85. He set
the previous mark at 301.28 on Nov. 5 at Binghamton. It is the third

the diving events against Towson for the fourth straight meet. He earned
the award again on Jan. 17 after winning both diving events against
Howard and shattering his own school record on the 1-meter board.
