Lazeroff scored a 369.15 on the 3-meter and Maillard a 292.05 on the 1-meter to pace the Auburn divers. Pete Turnham joined Lazeroff in the 3-meter finals, placing sixth with a score of 366.85 after entering the 12-man finals in 12th place.
“Overall a pretty successful day with Scott, Pete and Alison all advancing to finals,” Auburn diving coach Jeff Shaffer said. “Pete missed a reverse two-and-a-half poorly and was a little under-rotated on his last dive but was able to squeak into 12th-place and then rebounded to move up to sixth.
“Scott was pretty consistent in both lists and it’s always nice to move up (from fifth) in the finals.” Shaffer said. “Alison did two real solid lists.”
“One area that was lacking today was finishing dives, and I attribute that to a six-day break over the holidays,” Shaffer said. “It was a good learning experience. We have now gone against every school except Kentucky that we will meet at the SEC Championships. We are looking forward to tomorrow and improving our scoring potential as we prepare for our dual meets with Texas, Florida and the SEC Championships.”
The competition continues on Thursday with the women’s 3-meter and the men’s 1-meter competitions.
