Steele Johnson Wins NCAA 3-Meter Diving Title

New, 4 comments

Steele is 2 for 2 in Indy so far.

Olympics: Diving Andrew P. Scott-USA TODAY Sports

Two days. Two events. Two NCAA titles for Steele Johnson. On the second day of the NCAA championships in Indianapolis Johnson took home his second NCAA title of this year's championships and 4th of his career. He posted a final score of 502.20 and best Miami's Briadam Herrera's second place score of 477.30. It was a much wider margin than yesterday's 1-meter title.

Purdue also scored points with Brandon Loschiavo, who finished 13th to score 4 points for the team championship. Purdue has 57 points in the team championship, good for 15th place.

Tomorrow Johnson is expected to make history. No diver has ever won all three boards at the same championships, but Johnson is favored to win the 10-meter platform finals. It is his best board of the three and he was only an Olympic finalist a few months ago as one of the best on the planet at this.
