Vallée's Silver Medal Highlights Day 1
GREENSBORO, N.C. — Paced by second-year diver Mia Vallée’s silver medal in the 3-meter springboard, the Miami Hurricanes ended Day 1 of the 2021 ACC Swimming & Diving Championships in sixth place Wednesday.
The Hurricanes finished the first day of competition from the Greensboro Aquatic Center with 124 points.
Vallée’s score of 363.20 in the night’s finals trailed only Aranza Vazquez of North Carolina. The podium trip was the first of Vallée’s collegiate career.
Not to be outdone, freshman Savannah Barr led the way on an 800-yard freestyle relay team that finished seventh in a loaded field. Barr, who was joined by Adrianna Cera, Carmen San Nicolas and Sydney Knapp, posted a leadoff split of 1:46.76 that represented the third-fastest time in the 200-yard freestyle in program history.
The quartet ended the event in a time of 7:12.90.
In other action, freshman Jack Matthews was fifth in the 1-meter with a score of 340.80 in his first ever trip to the ACC Championships. Second-year diver Brodie Scapens just missed out on a chance at finals, finishing the preliminaries in ninth (317.90).
The ACC Championships continue Thursday on Day 2 of the four-day meet.
