Indiana sophomore Andrew Capobianco won the 3m diving title on Friday night at the 2019 NCAA Division I Men’s Swimming and Diving Championships in Austin, Texas as he won Indiana’s third NCAA title of the night. Capobianco followed Vini Lanza and Ian Finnerty as national champions for the Hoosiers as Capobianco scored 461.65 points to win the title over Miami senior Briadam Herrera (432.75).

Texas continued to pick up big diving points with junior Grayson Campbell (415.75) and Jordan Windle (359.65) placing third and seventh in the A-Final.

Tennessee’s Colin Zeng (400.00) placed fourth after winning the 1m title on Thursday night. Still no man has ever won all three diving boards at the NCAAs in the same year.

Columbia’s Jonathan Suckow (396.55), Stanford’s Noah Vigran (372.10) and Tennessee’s Matthew Wade (351.60) also placed in the A-Final.

Indiana now has ten 3m titles, but it is their first since 1981. Capobianco joins the likes of Ken Sitzberger (1965, 67), Jim Henry (1969, 70), Brian Bungum (1976, 77) and Robert Bollinger (1981) as winners of the event for the Hoosiers.
