PITTSBURGH—The University of Pittsburgh swimming and diving team hosted the third and final day of diving events during the Big East Championship held at Trees Pool on Sunday.
Competing in an exhibition final, freshman Harris Bergman placed third in the platform event with 239.20 points. Junior Erik Moore finished fifth overall after scoring 197.65 points.
On the women’s side, freshman Ali Swafford was the lone diver to compete on the platform board. She scored 145.85 points for eighth place in the event.
Platform diving was not a scored event at this year's Big East Championship. If it was, however, Bergman would have earned All-Big East honors for his third-place performance. The conference plans to make platform diving a scored event at the 2013 championship meet.
The Big East Championship will resume action on Wednesday, Feb. 15 with the 800 free and 200 medley relays at 6 p.m.
