A day after Grayson Campbell earned a share of the men’s 3-meter synchronized diving title, Texas junior Murphy Bromberg did the same on the women’s side at the USA Diving senior nationals on Friday.
Bromberg teamed up with Brooke Schultz to win the championship after scoring 287.40 points.
The duo will compete in next month’s FINA Diving World Cup as a result of Friday’s competition.
Bromberg and Schultz qualified in second during the preliminaries and moved to first place during the fourth round of the final.
Their most successful dive, a back 2 1/2 pike, scored 72 points.
Another current Longhorn, Alison Gibson, finished in second with diving partner Krystal Palmer of the Nevada Diving Club. The duo scored 262.20 points.
