On the men’s side, junior-to-be Grayson Campbell paired with Greg Duncan for third in the 3-meter synchro, and Jacob Cornish, who also will be a junior this fall, partnered with Zachary Cooper to earn 308.94 points in the 10-meter synchro.

It’s the second week in a row that the Longhorns won four medals in the FINA competition. Last week Gibson’s gold topped the haul, which included two silvers and a bronze.

Though the tour has one more stop in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, in November, this was the final competition of the season for the UT divers.
