Farouk Earns Bronze, Swimming Impresses on Day 3

GREENSBORO, N.C. — A bronze medal from junior diver Mohamed Farouk in the 3-meter springboard highlighted Day 3 of the ACC Swimming & Diving Championships at the Greensboro Aquatic Center.

Farouk followed up Brodie Scapens’ gold medal performance with a podium trip of his own Thursday night.

The standout junior, who will compete at the 2024 Paris Olympics representing his native Egypt, made his second springboard final of the week after finishing eighth in the 1-meter on Tuesday. Farouk ended the night with 409.15 points in the 3-meter final, finishing behind only Cameron Cash (427.30) and Dylan Reed (417.00), both of Pittsburgh.

Miami’s swimmers delivered another impressive outing of their own Thursday. Competing without their women’s diving contingent, the Hurricanes – who have the seventh-most swimming points in the field – added early points with a seventh-place finish in the ‘A’ final 100-yard butterfly from Giulia Carvalho (51.79).

Veteran Talia Bates (1:45.63) and Adrianna Cera (1:46.60) both delivered strong performances in the ‘B’ final of the 200-yard freestyle, taking second and sixth in the heat.

Savannah Barr (1:46.20) was third in the ‘C’ final of the 200 free.

The 2024 ACC Swimming & Diving Championships continue Friday from the Greensboro Aquatic Center.
