Beardall, Randall Place First at BYU Invitational

PROVO -- The BYU men's diving team placed first in the 3-meter and platform events, while the women placed second in the platform and third in the 1-meter Saturday at the BYU Invitational.

The Cougars swept the top three places in the platform with Justin Beardall placing first, Scott Randall placing second and Jeremy Budge finishing third. In the 3-meter Randall edged out Beardall for first place.

Diving coach Keith Russell said he was pleased with how his team performed today and they dived much better than they did yesterday.
