Texas’ Alison Gibson won the 1m diving title for the first time in her career and won Texas’ first diving title since Nicole Pohorenec won the platform event in 2004. It is also the first 1m title for Texas since 1998 when Vera Ilyina won back to back titles in 97 and 98.

The Texas freshman won the competition ahead of last year’s diver of the year in Sharae Zhang of Nevada and Olympian Kassidy Cook of Stanford. Gibson scored 332.60 to win.
