It was a productive weekend for the Herd diver, after placing fifth and sixth in the 1 and 3-meter competitions, respectively.

"I'm very proud of this team," Tramel said. "Their accomplishments are a result of their hard work. In all, we finished the meet with four school records. We had 29 performances that ranked in the top 10 all-time for our program's history. Eight of those were Top 3 all-time performances. This certainly will give us a fantastic foundation to build upon next year."
