David Dinsmore (New Albany, Ohio/Miami, Fla.) and Krysta Palmer (Carson City, Nev., Reno, Nev.) finished first in the men’s 10-meter and women’s 3-meter semifinals Friday to lead the field of divers advancing to Sunday’s final at the USA Diving Senior National Championships. Twelve divers in each event have advanced to finals.

Palmer scored 311.20 points to lead the women’s 3-meter semifinals. Sarah Bacon (Indianapolis, Ind./Minneapolis, Minn.) finished second with 309.60 points, and Hailey Hernandez (Southlake, Texas) was third with 302.95 points.

Dinsmore scored 466.80 points to finish first in the men’s 10-meter semifinals. Brandon Loschiavo (Huntington Beach, Calif./West Lafayette, Ind.) was second at 453.30, and Olympian Steele Johnson (Carmel, Ind./West Lafayette, Ind.) scored 444.90 points for third in the semifinals.

Although the national champion will be determined based on a single-list score from the finals, cumulative scoring from preliminaries, semifinals and finals will be used to select divers to the World Championships team.

After the men’s 10-meter preliminaries and semifinals, Dinsmore has 920.10 points. Loschiavo is at 870.35, 3.30 points ahead of Johnson. Brooke Schultz (Fayetteville, Ark.) scored 610.95 points on her two 3-meter lists and leads Palmer by 3.85 points. Bacon is third with 604.20 points. Two divers in each individual event will qualify for the World Championships.

The men’s 3-meter final will be broadcast live at 12:30 p.m. ET on NBC Sports Network, and the women’s 10-meter final will be shown live at 2 p.m. ET on NBC.
