MONDAY, JUNE 17 DIVING PRELIMS

Notes

The Hoosiers competed in the women’s synchronized 3-meter preliminary, the first event of the 2024 U.S. Olympic Diving Trials.

  • The pair of Kassidy Cook and Sarah Bacon led the way with a score of 310.95, followed closely by Alison Gibson and Krysta Palmer (300.33) after five dives. IU’s best performance came from Lily Witte and partner Bailee Sturgill with a 247.71.

    A slow morning gives way to a night in which three Hoosiers can qualify for the 2024 Paris Olympics.

    • Lilly King is the top qualifier in Monday night’s 100-meter breaststroke final with a time 85 hundredths quicker than the No. 2 seed.
    • Blake Pieroni and Anna Peplowski will automatically qualify for the Paris Games with top-four finishes in the men’s and women’s 200-meter freestyle final, respectively. The top two finishers will represent Team USA individually, while the No. 3 and No. 4 finishers would compete on the 4×200-meter freestyle relay in Paris. The Nos. 5 and 6 finishers could also qualify, but USA Swimming would not select those athletes until later in the week.
    • Next session: Monday, June 17. The third night of finals will start at 8 p.m. ET. Fans can watch on NBC and Peacock to see if the Hoosiers punch their tickets to Paris.
